Dues and subscription costs are listed in US dollars (USD). We accept most major credit cards, and if your local currency is not USD you will receive your bank's prevailing exchange rate (which is usually quite competitive).

Each ISCB membership is valid for one full year from the date of receipt of payment. This means your membership will be activated the day payment is received, and will expire 365 days later, unless renewed before expiration. To easily calculate the dues you would pay to be a member of ISCB, please use this handy Membership Dues Calculator.  ISCB membership dues are tiered (high income, middle-upper income, middle-lower income, and low income) based on country assignments using four global economic indicators (Gross Domestic Product, Gross National Income, Wealth per capita, and Median Wealth per capita). Economic indicators are reviewed biennially.
