The U.S. National Academies in
Washington, D.C. comprises four organizations:
Collectively, the National Academies serve as the scientific national academy
for the United States. The NAS, NAE, and IOM are honorary membership
organizations, with a total membership of over 6,000 scientists, engineers, and
health professionals. New members for each organization are elected annually
by current members, based on their distinguished and continuing achievements
in original research. NRC is the working branch of the Academies; its committees
collect, analyze, and share information through studies and reports.
The National Academies produce independent recommendations and policy reports
by enlisting top scientists, engineers, health professionals, and other experts
(not limited to those in Academies membership) to address the scientific and
technical aspects of some of society's problems. These experts volunteer
to serve on study committees that are convened to answer specific sets of
questions. All committee members serve without pay.
