Membership is on an individual basis. TaPRA does not admit group or institutional memberships.
Membership is normally open to any individual on payment of the appropriate fee. In exceptional cases the Executive Committee may refuse an application for membership or renewal of membership.
Members undertake to observe the frameworks laid out by UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) and the Universities UK Concordat to Support Research Integrity, with particular reference to promoting research integrity and maintaining highest standards of good practice. The Executive Committee reserves the right to refuse membership and/or attendance at TaPRA events and/or presentation of work that is demonstrated to have breached acceptable research conduct resulting in fabrication, falsification, misrepresentation, or plagiarism.
Subscription is on an annual basis and runs from the first day of the annual conference to 11.59pm the day before the next conference (or from the point of joining to 11.59pm the day before the next scheduled conference). A concessionary rate is available where eligibility can be demonstrated.
The Executive Committee will review the level of the Annual Subscription each year and propose any changes to it at the AGM.
Honorary life membership may be granted by the Executive to individuals who have given distinguished service to the organisation. Such memberships will be confirmed at the Annual General Meeting.
All members have a right to attend and vote at the Annual General Meeting.
