The International Society for Intelligence Research (ISIR) is a scientific society for researchers in human intelligence. It was founded by Douglas K. Detterman of the University of Alabama in 2000.
The society advocates for ongoing support for scientific research on cognitive ability. In 2018, an article by New Statesman documented examples of the society and its members advocating scientific racism and eugenics. The article states that while the society includes some prominent and well-respected scientists, its members, publications, and events have each also promoted ideas characterized by New Statesman as "racist pseudo-science".
