Membership fee

The annual membership fee is 12,000 yen, but admission is free. Upon admission, new members are asked to pay the membership fee for the year. The magazine “Kanzo” (Liver) will be sent to each member free of charge, but those who wish to receive the English journal “Hepatology Research” are required to pay an additional 18,000 yen per year.

Upon receiving an application for admission, the secretariat will send an application form (postcard) and an annual fee payment form. Fill them in and return them to the secretariat. The annual membership fee needs to be remitted to the postal transfer account (00110-2-27560) of the Japan Society of Hepatology. Membership registration will be processed after the application form (with 50-yen postage stamp) is received and remittance of the annual membership fee is confirmed by the secretariat. The new member will then be notified of their membership number. The membership number will be required for most future activities, including various procedures, submission of academic papers, requests to give lectures during meetings (including co-lecturers), and making inquiries.

  • Membership will be automatically continued unless specified otherwise (termination, suspension).
  • Those wishing to continue membership are asked to pay the annual fee of 12,000 yen each year, or 30,000 yen if including subscription to the English journal, using the postal payment form inserted in the magazine “Kanzo” (Liver), No. 3.
