Media Registration


  • Working press (journalists, photographers, videographers, bloggers, authors, and filmmakers) representing bona fide news media organizations with a press card, letter, or business card from the publication.
  • Freelance science writers, presenting a current membership card from NASW, ISWA, regional affiliates of NASW, ISWA, CSWA, ACS, ABSW, EUSJA, and evidence of their reporting on science published in 2022 or 2023. Note: authorship on technical research does not qualify for press credentials.
  • PIOs or institutional communicators from scientific societies, educational institutions and government agencies.

All registrants must provide credentials regardless of whether they have received press registration for past GSA meetings.

Representatives of the business side of news media, publishing houses, and for-profit corporations must register at the main registration desk and pay the appropriate fees. Editors of journals or other publications who do not report for or edit their outlet’s news section are not eligible for complimentary press registration.
