International Academic Advisory Board

The role of the International Academic Advisory Board is to provide advice and expertise in support of IAFOR’s mission and activities. Members are appointed by the President of IAFOR to one or more academic sections, depending on their individual area(s) of expertise.

Membership of the IAAB is for three years, renewable once, and is by invitation only. Journal Editors are ex-officio members of the Board for the length in which they serve.

The IAAB is organised into three academic divisions, and then further into sections, each of which has a Chair responsible for academic programmes and publications, and who serves as a representative on the Academic Governing Board.
