A CALL for MEMBERS
of this new Society
The Editors of Cytogenetic and Genome Research and the founding members* of this Society perceived a need for vertebrate, invertebrate and plant cytogeneticits from all parts of the world to have their own international society. This Society has now been established. It will have the following main functions:
… Foster the exchange of knowledge and collaboration between investigators of different disciplines of cytogenetics and from different parts of the world by organizing international conferences and by providing Internet facilities for such exchanges.
… Foster the 'ONE WORLD' concept by attempting to counteract the misinformation that appears to exist in some countries in respect to other nations by promoting interaction of investigators of different countries and by fostering training fellowship opportunities in two ways. (1). Encouraging and providing the mechanism for Society members to enlist and support postdoctoral trainees from developing nations. (2) Provide postdoctoral stipends by establishing an endowed fund for this purpose.
… Provide its members with the very sizable discounts for subscriptions and for publication costs in Cytogenetic and Genome Research and for other S. Karger journals and books (see below). We have also started negotiations with some publishers to obtain reductions for their publications and services and some have indicated their interest in doing this.
