      4S, Society for Social Studies of Science

      4S is an ICSU member since 2008.

      The Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) is a nonprofit, professional association. It was founded in 1975 and now has an international membership of about 1500. The main purpose of 4S is to bring together those interested in understanding science, technology, and medicine, including the way they develop and interact with their social contexts. 4S is governed by a President and Council elected from the membership. Annual meetings are held in a variety of locations throughout the world (recent and future meetings include Montreal, Rotterdam, Tokyo, and Pasadena). 4S produces a journal (Science, Technology, and Human Values) and a monthly electronic newsletter (Technoscience), both of which are benefits of membership.
