The National Coalition of Independent Scholars (NCIS) was formed in 1989 to facilitate the work of independent scholars and gained non-profit, tax-exempt status in 1991. Now international in membership and scope, NCIS establishes links with, and supports, independent scholar groups in the United States and abroad.
NCIS is unique among scholarly organizations in its multi-disciplinary nature, with members in the humanities, sciences, and arts. Members share a concern for the production of fine scholarship and for issues that affect scholars working outside of an institutional setting, including: access to research libraries, archives, and other scholarly resources; equal consideration in competition for grants and fellowships; inclusion in the scholarly review process and the making of research policies.
NCIS created and manages the H-Net discussion list H-Scholar. For more information about the organization, visit the website http://www.ncis.org
