The Society for the Study of Motivation is an international, interdisciplinary organization of researchers who study motivation. Its mission is to encourage inquiry into all aspects of motivation from a variety of disciplines and perspectives, and to facilitate the dissemination of findings to a broad scientific audience.
The Society for the Study of Motivation provides a forum for the exchange of scientific information, foster discussion of new ideas and findings on motivation among researchers, and encourage exchange and collaboration in research. It will do this through a list serve, online information exchange, annual conferences, and a journal dedicated exclusively to motivation research.
