Member Benefits

Scholarly publishing is evolving.
Let's talk about how ALPSP can help.

We offer a wide range of member benefits to help scholarly publishers, and those that work with them, connect with their peers, stay informed, develop their skills, and have their views represented.

There are two categories for members. Full membership is open to not-for-profit organizations anywhere in the world involved in publishing academic and professional information.
Associate membership is open to organizations that work with full members.

Before and since the launch of ARM Education Media in October 2016, membership in ALPSP has been invaluable.
As a new entrant in the academic publishing market, membership has provided a raft of useful resources to draw upon, including connections with other organizations via the conference and website, useful advice from the ever-helpful staff, and regular, up to date access to industry news and research.
Association with ALPSP has also helped establish ARM Education Media's credibility as it establishes its place in the publishing landscape.
