IARS is committed to producing only high quality publications that conform to internationally accepted research rules and ethics. The IARS Academic & Editorial Board exists to act as a sounding board for IARS' publications, research projects and reports. Furthermore, the Board acts as an independent peer review panel for IARS' Publications' peer reviewed, international Youth Voice Journal. Within the Academic Board, there is a standing Research Ethics Committee which reviews IARS research ethics applications.
