1. Relationship to IIAS’ Publication Policy

With regard to publications, IASIA operates within the general framework of IIAS’s publication policy, the main provisions of which are set out in the attached document. This acceptance of IIAS’s policy is subject to the following provisions which recognise the distinctiveness of IASIA and its membership in terms of academic and other networks of significance to the publication of research material.

2. Publication Committee

IASIA has a Publication Committee which is chaired by the Vice President (Special Projects and Publications) and which comprises four other members of IASIA appointed every three years by IASIA’s Board of Management, plus the President of IASIA, the Vice President (Programme) and the Director-General of the IIAS as ex-officio members. The appointed members are eligible for reappointment.

The Publications Committee is responsible for evaluating all research material submitted for publication by the chairpersons or project directors of Working Groups or by the convenors of other recognised groups in IASIA. In discharging this responsibility, the Committee may seek the advice and assistance of experts in the relevant field(s) of study.

Before authorising a publication, the Committee must be convinced that the material concerned is clearly of a publishable quality and is such that it effectively promotes IASIA’s good name and objectives.

3. Joint Venture Arrangements

Where appropriate, the Publications Committee can agree to joint venture arrangements between IASIA and another publisher being negotiated by chairpersons, project directors or other convenors for the publication of books and monographs as well as for the publication of symposia in journals in the fields of public policy, administration and management. The conditions which apply to these arrangements are as follows, subject to modification by the Committee in the light especially of the extent to which IASIA is able to provide financial support for the publication:


For books and monographs

a) that IASIA be recorded as co-publisher – thus « [name of publisher] in collaboration with IASIA » – both on the cover of the book or monograph and at an appropriate place on one of the first few pages;

b) that the copyright of the book or monograph be recorded at an appropriate place on one of the first few pages as vesting in IASIA and the editor(s) and/or authors(s) as well as in the other publisher;

c) that the IASIA logo and three paragraphs on IASIA be printed on the inside of the front cover of the book or monograph;

d) that the financial support provided by IASIA be acknowledged at an appropriate place on one of the first few pages of the book or monograph; and

e) that an appropriate number of copies of the book or monograph be given to IASIA (for distribution to its members) at no extra cost over and above IASIA’s financial support for the publication.


 For symposia in journals

a) that the title of the symposium begin with « IASIA Symposium on » and appear both on the cover of the journal and at the beginning of the table of contents;

b) that the copyright of the symposium be recorded at an appropriate place on one of the first few pages of the journal as vesting in IASIA and the guest editor(s) and/or author(s) as well as in the publisher of the journal;

c) that the IASIA logo and three paragraphs on IASIA be printed on the page immediately after the page(s) comprising the table of contents;

d) that the financial support provided by IASIA be acknowledged at an appropriate place on one of the first few pages of the journal; and

e) that an appropriate number of copies of the journal be given to IASIA (for distribution to its members) at no extra cost over and above IASIA’s financial support for the publication.

The financial support to be provided by IASIA for such venture arrangements is determined by the Board of Management on the advice of the Publications Committee.
