Reciprocal Member Societies

To facilitate international collaboration in the physics community, APS and other physics professional organizations maintain agreements to share membership privileges.

APS maintains reciprocal society agreements with other physics and scientific societies around the world.

If you are a member of a reciprocal society, you may submit papers to APS meetings with the same privileges and limitations as APS members and register for APS meetings at full APS membership regular rates.
