INRO Overview

The International Naval Research Organization is dedicated to the encouragement of the study of naval vessels and their histories, principally in the era of iron and steel warships (about 1860 to date). Its purpose is to provide information and a means of contact for those interested in warships. Founded in 1963 INRO, while based in the United States, has members around the globe. The membership includes, besides many of the leading authorities in the field, members of a large variety of professions, both men and women, active and retired naval personnel, historians and just plain "warship buffs". Anyone interested in the subject will find INRO a most valuable source of information and contact with others who have the same interest. The principal activity of INRO for the last 50 years has been the publication of a quarterly journal, Warship International, recognized internationally as the leading and most authoritative publication in the field. All memberships are for the calendar year, thus assuring those who join any time during the year of a complete annual volume of Warship International for that year. Basic dues are kept at the lowest figure required to cover production and distribution costs for Warship International. To provide additional funds, all of which are used for promotion of our objectives and principally to improve Warship International, advanced classes of membership are provided, and almost half of the membership contributes to these goals by selecting one of them. However, all membership classes receive exactly the same benefits.
