The Iranian Studies Directory (ISDirectory.org) is is an initiative developed by Iran Heritage Foundation which seeks to create a comprehensive reference and research facility for academics and scholars in the field. The ISDirectory aims to help foster global, interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers and institutions both inside and outside of Iranian studies. Currently in the first phase of its development, it is already possessed of more than 450 individual profiles, making it the largest network of its kind developed, with individuals ranging from Doctoral Candidates and Lecturers to Readers and Professors Emerita. Additionally, more than fifty organisations have also registered, ranging from the Chester Beatty Library in Ireland and the Museum of Islamic Art at the Pergamon, Berlin, to the Scandinavian Society for Iranian Studies and the National Museum of Iran. Future phases planned will incorporate a range of integrated services to enhance its usability and utility to the researcher community.
Professor Ehsan Yarshater, Professor Emeritus of Iranian Studies, Columbia University, and Founding-Editor, Encyclopaedia Iranica says:
‘Iran Heritage Foundation’s initiative to establish a site called ISDirectory.org is the realization of an excellent idea. It facilitates the finding of scholars in various fields of Iranian Studies that one may need to find. It helps easy access to the right scholar in the great variety of fields that Iranian Studies include. I have joined the Directory and hope that all scholars of Iranian Studies as well would join the Directory.’
The Directory is available for search purposes and can be accessed on the link above.
