Research analytics federations
Another fundamental goal of the IASHE is the formation of the organizational system for global association of scientists, support and development of active communications and professional cooperation of scholars.
Moreover, according to the basic principles of the IASHE, such organizational system must not be too formal, meaningless or inactive. It must have clear and potentially achievable goals. At the same time operations of this international organization must be based on free will and self-organization of scholars, appointment of managerial bodies by election, joint decision making.
This idea will be realized by the IASHE through the initiation of national and international Research analytics federations.
Research analytics federations of various countries and continents, as well as the World Research Analytics Federation are public associations created for the following purposes:
Federations are formed at the initiative or with the assistance of official partners of the IASHE — Administrators of relevant Federations. At the same time, governing bodies of Federations are selected directly by their members on democratic principles.
On the initial stage of their existence Federations do not have the status of legal entities, do not require state registration in relevant countries. A Federation acquires the official status from the moment a corresponding application (by an Administrator and not less than 10 members (founders) of the Federation), the Statute or Regulations adopted by the founders, are registered in the IASHE. Permanent registration of a Federation is confirmed by the IASHE Registration memorandum.
Legal regime of activities of Federations is the partnership (society in participation – agreement on joint activities with no legal entity registered). At the same time in future the efficient Federations may be officially registered and acquire a legal entity status — upon the approval of the IASHE.
