PURPOSE AND MANDATE

The purpose of the Institute shall be to undertake, sponsor and publish research within such disciplines and in such parts of the world as are deemed of relevance to Newfoundland and Labrador. Without limiting the generality of the above, research pertaining directly to social and economic development in Newfoundland and Labrador shall be of special importance.

ORGANIZATION

The Institute is an integral part of, and not an autonomous appendage, of the University. It is so organized that all its officers serve the University in other capacities and it is ultimately responsible to the President and Board of Regents of the University. The management of its affairs is vested in an Executive Committee, while the day-to-day responsibilities are in the hands of the Director and the Manager assumes daily responsibility for ISER Books.

FELLOWSHIPS

Terms and conditions of ISER fellowships may be obtained by addressing:

The Administrative Officer

In general, ISER fellowships function to supplement and stimulate research interests of faculty and graduate students in the social science departments.

ISER BOOKS

The Institute publishes research in the social sciences - more than 80 titles to date. Many of the books originate in research undertaken by ISER itself. Some notable ISER books, however, have originated outside the Institute. Authors are invited to submit completed manuscripts within such disciplines and about such parts of the world as are deemed of relevance to Newfoundland and Labrador - whether the focus is contemporary or historical, natural resource management, or the management of social and cultural resources.
