Membership FAQs

ISMPP is the only not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to supporting medical publication professionals. ISMPP operates as a 501(c)(6) organization under a carefully drafted constitution, registered in the State of New Jersey, USA, and recognized by the US Internal Revenue Service as such. Our not-for-profit status distinguishes us from all other groups, ensuring that all income realized is filtered back into the membership, as well as used to further the profession. This was “mission-critical” for all of ISMPP’s founders.

ISMPP has more than 1,700 members representing all sectors of medical publishing from the pharmaceutical, biotech, and device industries, medical publications and communications agencies, journal publishers and editors, professional medical writers, academic researchers, and other allied professionals.

We are truly international, with members from around the world. Our membership is our strength, and dedicated volunteers run our committees.


World-class conferences including European Meeting (250 attendees), Annual Meeting (500 attendees), Asia Pacific Meetings and events.
