We have launched a new Fellows’ portal where Fellows can update their details for the directory and discover ways to engage with the Society. We will also post external calls for evidence and expertise from relevant Scottish, UK and European organisations; details of government consultations that Fellows may wish to respond to; recruitment calls for trustee and board positions from relevant organisations; and other opportunities for Fellows to engage with other organisations and the wider society.

See below for various useful documents, including the expenses claim form, travel guidance and the RSE Laws. Fellows can also pay their subscriptions online.

Complaints and Allegations of Misconduct

The RSE is a membership organisation and Fellows are elected because of their eminence and high-standing. Complaints and allegations of serious misconduct against Fellows are exceedingly rare. Nevertheless, in order to maintain the high reputation of the RSE and its Fellows, the Council of the RSE has created a procedure, which sets out the process for dealing with such situations in a fair and proportionate manner.

Council has appointed Sir David Edward KCMG, QC, PC to chair the Independent Review Panel which will investigate any complaints referred to it.
