Personal Rates for 2020

We are delighted to say that we have been able to maintain the rates for 2020 at the levels set for 2019. If you are based in the UK or Europe we have actually been able to reduce the cost for hard copies of SEAJ, as VAT is no longer applicable to print publications. However, VAT is now applicable to purchases of electronic copies, regardless of location. 

Memberships and SEAJ subscriptions run from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020

There are lots of ways to join CSEAR and payment can be made in a number of ways:

  • Online payment - click here if using a credit/debit card. Most major credit cards are accepted. Please note that the final payment page to which you will be taken is run by the University of St Andrews E-commerce system.
  • A cheque payable to University of St Andrews with details of your name, mailing address, and email address can be sent to the CSEAR Office. (See the Contact Us section for our address details). Whilst we would prefer to receive cheques in Pounds Sterling we appreciate that this is not always possible for members. As a result we are able to accept cheques in the currencies shown above - the unfavourable rates of exchange reflect the Centre's currency translation bank charges.
  • Payment can also be made via the Bank Transfer system (BACS) from invoice - please email us at  for further details.
  • A request can also be made for us to invoice your department/institution by emailing us at

A database of all members’ information is kept by CSEAR in accordance with the UK's Data Protection Act 1998 and the University of St Andrews's entries in the UK National Data Protection Register.
