Why should I become an SBIC member?

There are many benefits of SBIC membership. All members automatically receive a personal subscription to the Journal of Biological Inorganic Chemistry, the society's premier journal. From 1 January 2021 members publishing in JBIC can benefit from a 40 % discount on online orders of Springer books via and all members will get free online access to Topics in Current Chemistry, the journal for topical, in-depth reviews covering all areas of chemistry.  SBIC members are eligible for the SBIC Early Career Award, and the SBIC Student Travel Grants for ICBIC and regional BICS. SBIC supports many conferences in the area of biological inorganic chemistry and we cannot do this without member support. SBIC members have access to the Members Only page on our website which is currently under development and is planned to include the membership database, educational resources as well as the option to post job opportunities. All this and knowing that you are included in the premier international society in your discipline should be reasons enough.
