Council of Editors of Learned Journals

New Membership Info

CELJ has two membership options, which run on a 12-month rolling basis, from the date of entry to the membership system:

  • Full membership ($45) 
  • Associate membership ($20)

All journals are required to have at least ONE Full Member. Non-managing/section editors can sign up as Associate Members, but must have a Full member already signed up or simultaneously sign up in the same registration/renewal. 

Benefits: The benefits for both member levels are the same and include the following features:

  • Access to the members-only CELJ discussion forums online
  • Ability to submit to the annual CELJ awards competition
  • First access to participate in panels on scholarly editing at the annual Modern Language Association
  • Continued professional development offerings for editors
  • Opportunities to provide editorial mentoring to authors
  • Discounts on the Times Literary Supplement's annual scholarly journals issue
  • Access to mediation services conducted by the Board

Single-Journal Registration

If you are a returning member, do not use this form. Instead, go to the instructions to renew your membership instead. If you are registering for a single editor/journal, follow these instructions.

Choose the appropriate membership level at the bottom of this page.
  1. It will ask for your email. use your personal or your journal's email (your choice -- but the email can only be used once within the system, so if you want multiple editors from a single journal to become members, you will need to use different email addresses for each membership.) Click Next.
  2. Fill out the application form with all information possible. (You can return and add/change information in your profile later.) Click Next.
  3. You will see a payment screen. CELJ accepts payment online via Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. We do not accept checks at this time
