Become a member of the American Peptide Society: it's free!


Membership is open to graduate students, professionals, and retired professionals, with an interest in peptides or a related scientific field.

Membership in the society will bring you:

  • Exclusive on-line access to papers published at all previous APS symposia, 1968 - present
  • Connection with all members through the membership directory
  • Exclusive discounted on-line subscription to the Society journal at $30 per year
  • Access to a job related message board (you can post "job wanted" or "job available" messages)
  • Information on the latest developments in our field

    As part of the membership application process, we ask that you indicate your level of involvement in the peptide science community or in a potentially related field. If you have published in the peptide field, or in one that you consider could have useful interactions with peptide science, please indicate this by giving us a link to your list of publications or the doi's of up to five of them. Your application will be processed immediately. If you do not yet have such publications, we ask that you arrange for a letter of reference to be sent on your behalf to the society at apsmanager@americanpeptidesociety.org indicating your involvement in the field. For example, if you are a graduate student, an email from a professor stating that you are a student would be appropriate. This will allow the APS to properly process your application.
