How to join
IACR membership is connected to a subscription to the Journal of Critical Realism published by Maney Publishing. As the process is not always intuitive, below is a simple ‘how to’ guide for becoming an IACR member. It is important for everyone (even the IT saavy) to be aware of step 3 – Membership options and the difference between individual and IACR subscription.
1. Step One – Website location
Go to the Journal of Critical Realism on the Maney publishing website. http://maneypublishing.com/index.php/journals/rea
2. Step Two – Subscription
Click on ‘subscribe’ highlighted on the picture below.
3. Step Three – Membership options
You will now be asked to select which membership option. For persons wishing to subscribe there are two options
a. Individual subscription – is for individuals who wish to subscribe to the JCR only.
b. Membership subscription – This is the option most people will want. This option enrols you for IACR membership AND subscribes you to the JCR. This effectively gives you a discount of £20, plus other benefits, including voting rights at the AGM, and a discounted price at the annual conference. See below for visual clarification.
Once you have decided on your membership/subscription options, you will need to click ‘Ad to basket’.
4. Step Four – Purchase
Once you have clicked ‘Add to basket’ you will be automatically redirected to you basket listing your purchase. Here you adjust quantity if you wish to purchase multiple memberships (highlighted below) otherwise simply select ‘Checkout’ (also highlighted).
5. Step Five – Login
To complete your purchase you will need to create a login account for Many Publishing, if you do not already have one. You will be redirected to this page.
6. Step Six – Creating an account.
If you login to an existing Maney account you will be taken to the account screen. If you do not already have an account, you will need to select, ‘I am new to Maney, and would like to create an account. At this point you will be asked to fill in your personal details. Once all your details are completed and submitted, you will be redirected to the following screen to enter any chosen password for your account.
7. Step Seven – Finishing the purchase
Once the account creation is completed you will be redirected to your accounts home page which allows you to access you purchases, and update your details. To actually complete your membership purchase you will need to click on the view basket option, highlighted below.
From here you will be returned to the checkout screen in step four. Now, when selecting ‘checkout’ you will be taken to the payment screen and be asked to input payment and delivery details for your purchase.
