How to Renew Your CELJ Membership

CELJ memberships must be renewed annually according to the date your membership expires. You will receive several automatic reminder emails. If your membership has expired or is about to expire, find the membership payment option below that applies to you and follow the instructions to renew.

Renewing Your Individual Membership

If you or your journal pay for your membership by credit card or check, please follow these steps to process and pay for your renewal.
  1. Login to view your CELJ member profile. (If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it here.)
  2. On your profile page click Renew to [date].
  3. You can update your name and email address if necessary before clicking Update and next.
  4. On this final screen, review your membership information and click Confirm.
  5. The next screen will present payment options. CELJ takes payment online via all major credit cards. We do not accept checks at this time.

Renewing Multi-Journal Memberships

  • If you are an editor whose journal membership is paid for by a press, please contact the press to ensure they have you listed on their renewal invoice. That's it. :)
  • If you are an administrator renewing for a group of editors but NOT affiliated with a university or academic press, please contact us at to make sure we can provide you the most efficient renewal service.
  • If you are a press staff member who needs a paper invoice for multiple journals, please contact us at with a list of the journals for which you will be paying and include the editor names and email addresses for each journal. We can send you a sample spreadsheet that contains all the info we need, particularly if you're adding new editors and removing others on an annual basis. (We have a new Beta online way to do this that we are currently testing, if you're interested.)
