While not a member organization of the Digital Humanitarian Network, the Advancing Science, Serving Society association, inspired by GISCorps, runs a similar pro bono program called On-call Scientists. The initiative invites behavioral, life, physical, and social scientists, engineers, technicians, medical professionals, and public health practitioners to participate. Since 2008, the project has recruited 753 scientist volunteers, fielded 39 requests from human rights organizations, and has matched 143 scientists to human rights organizations. Engagements range from fielding discrete scientific questions to formal, long-term placements. The initiative lists a wide variety of ways scientists can contribute domain-specific as well as general scientific knowledge to human rights work:

• Statisticians advising on good survey research methods to measure mass displacement
• Climatologists reviewing a report on a human rights-based analysis of the impact of climate change
• Sociologists developing indicators to measure project objectives
• Geographers mapping incidents of discrimination
• Public health professionals crafting appropriate health care policies to meet the right to health
• Geneticists providing guidance in identifying victims of atrocities
• Hydrologists providing training in water testing for work on the human right to water
• Scientists of all disciplines can answer questions related to scientific method as well as data analyses and interpretation
