Academies and learned societies

A learned society (also known as a learned academy, scholarly society, or academic association) is an organization that exists to promote an academic discipline, profession, or a group of related disciplines such as the arts. Membership may be open to all, may require possession of some qualification, or may be an honor conferred by election. Excerpted from Learned society on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
