Going Green


I've already renewed this year, can I opt in too?

Absolutely! Members who have renewed prior to Nov 1st 2021 will be contacted separately regarding their opt-in preferences.

What are the fees?

£72 (GBP) for EMAL* and £28 (GBP) for MIE.
*For EMAL's 50th Anniversary, hard copies will be free for 2022.

Can I pay for hard copies of EMAL but have online access for MiE?

Yes. You can choose this as part of the opt-in process.

Can I opt in to receive hard copies at a later date in the year?

No. You must make your selection on your renewal date only.

If I cancel my subscription can I be reimbursed for the remaining part of the opt in fee?

No. The opt in fee is a non-refundable payment for 12 months’ issues of the journals.

How do I notify you of a change in postal address?

Can I terminate my BELMAS subscription but still receive the hard copies of journals if I pay the opt in fee?
