Registration Advice for all members

Welcome to the Membership Services page of the HES.

Membership in the History of Economics Society includes a subscription to the Journal of the History of Economic Thought (JHET).

Formed in 1974, the History of Economics Society is an international organization dedicated to promoting, preserving and enhancing the study of the history of economic thought. What started as a Bulletin first published in 1983, the Society now publishes one of the premier journals in the field: The Journal of the History of Economic Thought. In addition to the print journal, the Society also sponsors an electronic journal through the Social Sciences Research Network (SSRN) entitled: The ERN History of Economics Journal.

In concert with its publishing activities, the Society hosts an annual conference each year (typically in June) and also organizes sessions for the Allied Social Science Association (ASSA) Meetings held every January. It also sponsors a number of prizes in the History of Economics which include: The Dorfman Prize (for the best dissertation), the Joseph J. Spengler Award (for the best book), and a best article prize.

In support of young scholars, the Society has created the Warren J. and Sylvia J. Samuels Young Scholar Program that provides scholarships for graduate students to attend the Society's Annual Conference and the Summer Institute for the Preservation of the History of Economic Thought held at George Mason University.
