Open access Membership Directory
The Membership Directory is now open to the public. Anyone can search for a member by name or find individuals by field of study, specialization, regional focus, language, or country of residence. The IUSSP Council believes this will make members’ research more visible to the public and promote networking between population scientists and researchers in other fields and disciplines. In order for the Membership Directory and Find a Member search tool to fulfill this function, however, we need you to maintain and update your personal member profile page. Click on the link to read more on the Membership Directory and Find a Member. Also read more about tips for creating an attractive Membership Profile Page.
