Membership of the Society is open to those who work or have worked in the field of human biology, as defined on the homepage. Membership is by election. Applicants are nominated by two Ordinary Members. If it is not possible to find two existing members to nominate you, please send us your CV. Applications are scrutinized by the Committee and approved, on average, within 2 weeks of submission.
In addition to belonging to a research community with similar interests, benefits of SSHB membership include receiving the journal Annals of Human Biology at a much-reduced rate (including online access), attendance at the annual Proffered Papers meeting and other meetings organised by the Society, participation in the email discussion list if you so wish, and reduced registration fees at the Society’s Symposia.
