The Borneo Research Council was founded in 1968 and its members consist of "Fellows, an international group of scholars who are professionally engaged in research in Borneo [Borneo Research Bulletin, vol. 18, no. 2, pg. 216]." The goals of the Council are to promote scientific research in Borneo; to disseminate rapidly the results of research activity; facilitate research by reporting on the current conditions in Borneo; to permit the Borneo government, research community, and others interested parties to keep aware of ongoing projects; to raise awareness of ongoing issues in Borneo; and to help coordinate the dissemination of information on Borneo from a variety of sources. Funding for the Council comes from the subscriptions to its Borneo Research Bulletin. Fellows are formally invited to be members of the council. [IBID, 216]
