IAFOR's online, Open Access journals conform to the highest academic standards of international peer review, and are published in accordance with the IAFOR publishing commitment to make all of our published materials available online.

IAFOR’s journals reflect the interdisciplinary and international nature of our conferences and are organised thematically. Journal editors will consider articles submitted directly via an open call for papers, and may also invite authors of papers deposited in the Conference Proceedings of associated IAFOR events to submit a reworked manuscript for editorial evaluation and peer review. All papers are reviewed equally according to standard peer review processes.

IAFOR publications are accessible on the website (Open Access) to researchers all over the world, completely free of charge and without delay or embargo. Authors are not required to pay submission or publication charges of any sort. Journal editors and Editorial Board members do not receive financial remuneration for their contributions.

Conference Reports and Intelligence Briefings

IAFOR produces conference reports that provide concise and coherent overviews of the ideas, conversations and areas of research present. These include key themes and takeaways, referencing programme(s), speakers and attendees, which are curated and archived for both those who attended the event, as well as those who did not, to stay abreast of many of the developments and insights provided by the conference, and the collective intelligence of its participants.

Conference Proceedings

IAFOR Conference Proceedings are Open Access research repositories that act as permanent records of the research generated by IAFOR conferences. All papers published in the Conference Proceedings are given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). This enables published articles to be cited properly and increases their visibility.

Research Reports

IAFOR is able to use its convening power and international research network of individuals and institutions to undertake original research, produce research reports, and disseminate the research findings. We have been commissioned by both the Prime Minister’s Office/Cabinet Office and the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
