The International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (ISBRA) serves to promote excellence internationally in all aspects of biomedical research on alcoholism and alcohol related biomedical phenomena.
We encourage ISBRA members to publish in and access Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research (ACER) online, since it is the official ISBRA journal.
There are two ways that an individual can be accepted as a Regular Member of ISBRA. If an individual is already a member in good standing of an affiliated regional society of ISBRA: Asia-Pacific Society for Alcohol and Addiction Research (APSAAR), European Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (ESBRA), Japanese Medical Society of Alcohol and Addiction Studies (JMSAAS), Latin American Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (LASBRA), or Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) he or she need only complete the ISBRA Membership Application Form. Annual dues for these members are $50. If an individual is not a member of an affiliated society, he or she must submit both an up-to-date Curriculum Vitae and the online Membership Application Form, both completed in English. Additionally, graduate student applicants who are not already members of affiliated societies are required to submit a letter from their mentor stating that the applicant is currently under their supervision and participating in an alcohol research program. Annual dues for nonaffiliated members are $65. Do not send your dues payment with your application form. Upon acceptance to the society, you will be billed during the regular billing cycle.
The Membership Committee reviews applications four (4) times a year. Application deadlines are: January 2, April 1, July 1 and October 1. You will be notified in writing of your formal acceptance into ISBRA.
In addition to these set deadlines, this year we will also be reviewing applications on June 1, 2020 in preparation for the 2020 ISBRA/RSA Conference.
Thank you for your interest in ISBRA!
