NASW plays an active role in supporting efforts to ensure writers are paid for their work, promoting press freedom, protecting copyright protections for writers, and facilitating efforts to preserve and improve access to information related to science and scientific research.

In the coming year, we will continue working to strengthen ties across our community, which includes science writers from a wide variety of professional backgrounds. Our community is stronger with members like you. We encourage you to help us ensure that NASW is addressing your needs as a science writer by exploring the work that our committees do and getting involved when and where you are interested. NASW is driven, in large part, by the work of its members, and we welcome your input.
