The Society has three main channels for spreading news items of interest to its members: The announcements on the website frontpage, the ISHPSSB-L mailing list (1997–present), and the twice-yearly newsletter (1995–present).

You can also join our Facebook group to keep up with current events, and follow our Twitter via the link or on this page.

Current Announcements

ISHPSSB Listserv mailing list

The ISHPSSB listserv is a moderated email list. Those who subscribe receive announcements of interest to the Society's members, made on as-needed basis, with a frequency of about once per month. Subscribers to the listserv receive the emailed announcements as brief descriptions of each item, together with a link for each to a webpage where further information can be found.

Posting to the Listserv

If you would like your announcement to be included in the next posting to the listserv, include your announcement in an email to Lloyd Ackert at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We welcome any items that would be of interest to Society members: position announcements, postdoctoral announcements, grant and funding opportunities, conference announcements, calls for papers, calls for applications to postgrad training events (summer/winter schools), book announcements, or brief queries on research topics.

Note on postings

The sooner you send your announcement to the moderator, the more likely that it will be posted before its deadline!

ISHPSSB Newsletter

The Society publishes a newsletter twice per year, once in the spring and once in the fall. In contrast to the Listserv-News, it consists almost entirely of statements and reports from the various committees that keep ISHPSSB running. The newsletter traditionally includes also a section written by the president, directly addressed to the society's members. It is the perfect place to look for the outcomes of past events, including meetings and off-year workshops, as well as to learn about society's current state, recent concerns, and the future plans.

The newsletter is edited by David Suarez. Suggestions for the Newsletter should be sent to the Secretary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Scroll down for the past newsletters in both HTML and PDF formats.
