This article is based almost exclusively on NYAS website and publications which may introduce bias. For example, from NYAS's vision it is clear it's not a scientific organisation, as its main role is organising conferences, "increasing the number of scientifically informed in society at large", etc. --Abanima (talk) 17:11, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

You seem to have no evidence of bias, only the vague claim that there could be, and your second point does not support your claim since the article says exactly what its main role is. Paul B (talk) 23:40, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't know what it's role is in the US, but for foreigners, NYAS is mostly a diploma mill: anyone can buy a membership (and with it, a nice-looking certificate), and since it's name sounds very authoritative, all sorts of pseudoscientists use it to appear as legitimate scientists. --Tgr (talk) 14:21, 9 February 2010 (UTC)


Is the journal an authoritative one? Is it worth it to read some reviews from it, etc., is it properly reviewed? --CopperKettle 15:58, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Well, they state the journal is peer-reviewed. --Abanima (talk) 18:09, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
