ESCAN Members Mailing Lists

We are pleased to offer ESCAN members a subscription to our mailing lists. These mailing lists serve as a platform for communication among members. 

We offer three mailing lists:

1. General mailing list: It is used to receive messages from ESCAN members.

2. SIG ESCAN-Social Neuroscience´s mailing list: It is used to get informed about the SIG ESCAN-Social Neuroscience’s activities. 

3. ESCAN Junior Member Committee´s mailing list: It is used to get informed about activities of the ESCAN Junior Member Committee. 

Note that all ESCAN members can send messages to these lists.

We kindly request that you limit these emails to matters of general relevance for members, such as calls for special issues and job openings.

If you recently paid your fee as a new member, you will receive a separate notification by mail once we have processed your payment and added your account to the profile, enabling you to opt-in for the mailing list. Because of the manual work involved, we update the member database to reflect the most recent payments only 3 or 4 times a year.
