THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

The Royal Irish Academy/Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann champions research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers. We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated. The Academy is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest Academic honour in Ireland.

About Publications

The Royal Irish Academy is one of the longest-established publishers in Ireland. Founded in 1785, it began publishing scholarly articles in its Transactions (later renamed Proceedings) in 1787 - six journals are now published by the RIA. The Academy also publishes books aimed at communicating scholarly material to a wider public. These may be from one of the Academy’s Research Projects or commissioned/non-commissioned works.
