Individual memberships provide a yearly electronic subscription to the Journal of Experimental Criminology and the DEC newsletters.

Organizational memberships provide centers, departments, institutes, nonprofits, universities, and other entities with one yearly subscription to the Journal of Experimental Criminology. Additionally, organizational logos will be displayed on newsletters and websites.
