Cruise Research Society
CRS Members

CRS Members mainly consist of:

  • High-profile practitioners (Patrons)
  • Established academic researchers (Fellows)
  • High-potential students (Members)   

all of which are actively and significantly contributing to cruise research at an international level.  

Fellowships, Memberships and Patronages are awarded on the basis of a rigorous review process:

  1. Applicants are required to send in the CV, Publication list, and references (plus a text outlining their future plans and contribution potential for the society)
  2. The CRS Executive board reviews the application and assesses its validity.  Thereafter, the application material is forwarded to all the existing CRS members for feedback.
  3. The CRS members provide feedback and a recommendation (Acceptance, rejection, conditional acceptance)
  4. The CRS executive board consolidates the review results and communicates the decision to the applicants.

CRS is a non-for-profit society and our aim is to consolidate a rather loose network of cruise-researchers and professionals, who are actively committed to cruise research. We have initiated the International Cruise Conference Series and on the medium term we are planning to publish a specialized cruise journal (double blind peer reviewed). Until now the added value of the society has been the commitment and activity of it members. Not their sheer numbers. This is why we have introduced this kind of application reviewing.
