Our Constituent Organisations

Our Constituent Organisations help us identify and address issues relevant to the research, knowledge and innovation sectors, and link into the research information and activities that the Society undertakes.

Constituent Organisations are generally discipline-based, that is their members group through an interest in a particular discipline. Each Constituent Organisation is a voting member of the Society, and aligns to an Electoral College. They get to participate in the Discipline-based Forums, chaired by the Society's three Vice Presidents.

The list below is alphabetical by organisation. To find Constituent Organisations grouped by discipline (Electoral College), see our discipline-based forums:
