GLOBAL OUTREACH Membership

The ASM Global Outreach Program seeks to engage scientists from resource-constrained countries by providing membership and full access to all online ASM journals at no cost.

Global Outreach members are a critical component of ASM's global knowledge network of 40,000 members and enjoy full membership benefits.

There are currently three categories of Global Outreach Membership:

Global Outreach member – Any individual scientist who is qualified for ASM membership and resides within one of the listed countries may apply. Benefits include access to ASM Journals online and most benefits attributed to a contributing member, including access to listservs, cumitechs, discounted page charges for manuscripts and discounted registration rates for ASM meetings and conferences. Global outreach members do not receive Microbe magazine in print. Additionally, print journals must be purchased.

Global Outreach Student member – Any fully matriculated student who is qualified for ASM membership and resides within one of the listed countries may apply. The student must not hold a doctoral degree. Benefits include access to all ASM Journals online and most benefits attributed to a student member, except Microbe magazine in print. Additionally, print journals must be purchased.

Global Outreach Postdoctoral member – Any qualified individual holding a doctoral degree that was received within the past 5 years. Membership period is up to 5 years total, after which the status will be changed to Global Outreach member.
