About

SIOP has been part of the ever-growing global, multidisciplinary and online knowledge-sharing network SOSIDO since 2015 and many of our members appreciate and enjoy the weekly email digest which updates them with a summary of activity in their community.

Sosido was created for and by healthcare associations, to speed knowledge transfer, promote collaboration, highlight the important work and research by members, and publicize the contributions of each specialty group to the broader healthcare community.

SIOP joins a growing network of associations and research groups on Sosido.

SIOP Member Benefits

SIOP members who joined or renewed their membership prior to April 30 (of the current membership year) will receive a weekly email digest with a summary of activity in their community.

Members don’t have to log in to participate, and anything that’s important will come to their inbox.

The digest contains:

  • News and updates from your association, pulled automatically from your group’s website, blog or Twitter feed.
  • A summary of new publications authored by your association colleagues. Sosido automatically tracks and features member publications, providing a current and complete snapshot of the work of your community, without effort by members.
  • New questions and answers in your association’s discussion forum. Members can ask and answer clinical practice questions in a secure members-only discussion forum.
  • New articles from your chosen journal feeds. Your association chooses a few feeds to start, and members can change their feeds to suit their own interests.

Members can customize their digest to change their journal feeds or follow other associations of interest.

Join SIOP or Renew your membership

What happens if I do not renew or join SIOP before the April 30 deadline ?

Your status will change from a full member of the SIOP community on Sosido (where we track and feature your publications) to a follower of the SIOP community on Sosido (where you will still get the weekly email digest with member publications and news/notices from SIOP, but don’t have your own publications tracked or featured).

In other words, if you do not renew your SIOP membership on time, SOSIDO will stop tracking your publications. Any of your publications released while your membership is lapsed or after the April 30 cut-off date will not be featured in the SIOP email digest and will not be posted on your Sosido profile.
