Full ISWA membership is open to anyone who derives the bulk of his or her income from writing about science, technology, and related topics, or who edits such material or prepares it for broadcast to the general public or for specific groups. We do not generally accept members who are publish only public relations or scholarly works. Associate membership is open at the Membership Committee’s discretion, to those in related fields who wish to advance the aims of the Association. Full and associate members pay $25 (US) per year. ISWA provides members with a membership card that can be used to verify your press credentials.
ISWA publishes a periodic electronic newsletter and occasional special email bulletins to keep members up to date with professional developments in other countries, as well as news of international meetings, study and fellowship opportunities, and travel advisories. In the near future, certain electronic benefits will appear within a private area of the ISWA website.
