SRS updates reduced membership fees for residents of developing countries

In a continued effort to provide scientists residing in developing countries with access to training and education in sleep and circadian research, the Sleep Research Society (SRS) is pleased to offer updated reduced “Corresponding” membership dues to potential members in all areas noted below as low income and lower-middle income. The Corresponding Member category includes an electronic subscription to the journal SLEEP.

The geographical areas categories are based on the developing countries identified by the World Bank. Calculations are made by means of the World Bank Atlas method. For 2017, low income economies in developing countries which have a gross national income (GNI) per capita at US $1025 or less in 2015; countries with a lower-middle income economy gross national income (GNI) between US $1,026-$4,035. Members working or residing outside the countries listed below are required to pay full membership dues.

To apply for the reduced rates, please submit a letter requesting Corresponding Members status describing the hardship via email, fax (630) 737-9790 or mail to Sleep Research Society, 2510 North Frontage Road, Darien, IL 60561.
