New Zealand Association of Scientists award night 1 November 2017

The New Zealand Association of Scientists is a professional body for scientists in New Zealand. It was founded in 1942 as the New Zealand Association of Scientific Workers, and renamed in 1954.[1] It differs from the Royal Society of New Zealand in being an independent non-profit incorporated society and registered charity,[2][3] rather than being constituted by an Act of Parliament.[4] While not being entirely non-political,[5] the Association focuses on policy and social responsibility aspects of science.[6]

The Association publishes a peer reviewed journal the New Zealand Science Review which is a "a forum for the exchange of views on science and science policy issues."[7] The Association awards an annual Marsden Medal for service rendered to the cause or profession of science.
