The International Academy for Suicide Research is an organization that promotes high standards of research and scholarship in the field of suicidal behaviour by fostering communication and co-operation among scholars engaged in such research.
The Academy’s official publication is the Archives of Suicide Research. This is a peer-reviewed journal published by Taylor & Francis.
The Academy holds annual scientific and business meetings. These have been held in conjunction with conferences such as the International Association for Suicide Prevention, the European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour, and the American Association of Suicidology.
New qualified members are welcome. Please go to our membership page for more information on joining the IASR.
