Astrobiology Society of Britain (ASB) Now an Affiliated Society Member of Life
In November 2018, the Astrobiology Society of Britain (ASB) became affiliated to Life. As part of this collaboration, all members of ASB enjoy a discount on the article processing charges (APC) when submitting articles to Life.
The Astrobiology Society of Britain (ASB), founded in March 2003, is a learned society for scientists and others interested in the relationship between life and its cosmic environment. This covers a vast diversity of topics and research methodologies, encompassing observational astronomy, theoretical astrophysics, geological expeditions, and laboratory-based microbiology and prebiotic chemistry. The ASB is a highly interdisciplinary forum, with a membership spanning the full spectrum of these topics, and is open to all professional scientists and students interested in the field. Its membership is international.
In addition to acting as a nexus for its members and running this website, the ASB publishes a quarterly newsletter and runs workshops and conferences. The newsletter provides updates on all aspects of astrobiology, from the latest results and news to activities of our members and up-coming international conferences and meetings of astrobiological interest. The ASB also holds annual workshops for members, as well as its own conference every two years, which acts as a focus for discussion in astrobiology.
ASB is a professional organization whose functions are highly relevant to the scope of Life. We look forward to collaborating with ASB and publishing state-of-the-art research from its members in this field.
