Membership & library sales

Your membership

Your membership helps support the advocacy of science in New Zealand. As a member of the NZAS you also receive:

  • New Zealand Science Review, the official publication of the association*,
  • representation in the media, before government, and other relevant groups, on issues of importance to scientists
  • opportunities for participation in discussion on issues relating to New Zealand science, and
  • an optional profile on (members set theirs up here).

Membership Fees for 2016-2017

Invoices are sent out to existing members each year.  Annual membership fees* are:

  • $70.00 for full members;
  • $80.00 for joint members;
  • $45.00 for associate members (this option is for those who are retired and/or unwaged);
  • $15.00 for undergraduate and postgraduate students
  • $150.00 for corporate membership (receive 2 copies of NZSR).

*As part of our transition to electronic publishing of the New Zealand Science Review, members will receive early access to the electronic version that is later published free online. All non-student members may opt out of the print edition, reducing membership fees by $35. By default, student members will not receive print copies but may opt in to the print edition for $35.

Please note that like other New Zealand scientific societies, members should advise us if they no longer wish to be members. Otherwise, ongoing membership is assumed and we will continue to send invoices yearly (as well as copies of the NZSR).
