Annual subscriptions to the Journal of Liberal History are available to individuals and institutions in the UK and worldwide. You have a choice of:

  • Print subscription (£30 / £20 unwaged) – four issues of the Journal per year, delivered to your door.
  • Digital subscription (£25 / £15 unwaged) – download the latest and all previous issues of the Journal from our website.
  • Print plus digital subscription (£50 / £30 unwaged) – both the above.

Subscribers outside the UK add £30 to the waged rates for print and digital plus print options.

‘Unwaged’ means those under state pension age who are either full-time students or in receipt of state benefits e.g. Universal Credit (or equivalent). 

Journal subscribers qualify for a 20% discount on books and booklets published by the History Group – see page 3 of the most recent issue of the Journal for the discount code to apply when ordering from the Liberal History Shop.

How to subscribe

New subscribers (and existing subscribers renewing) can:

  • Subscribe online; or
  • Subscribe by standing order, which means you never need to remember to renew! Download and complete both a membership form and a standing order form (print or digital or print plus digital) and return them to the Membership Secretary; or
  • Pay by cheque: download and complete this membership form and return it to the Membership Secretary with a cheque made out to ‘Liberal Democrat History Group’.

Individual subscriptions

Our subscription year runs from 1 October to 30 September and includes four issues (published mid-January, mid-April and mid-July and mid-September).

Old issues of the Journal are available online, but the most recent ten issues are only available to digital subscribers. Digital subscribers will be sent a password (changed each year) for access to the protected area of this site.

You do not have to be a member of the Liberal Democrats to join the History Group.
