The International Academy of Sciences, Humanities, and Arts (IASHA, Internationale Akademie der Wissenschaften und Künste e.V). is a German non-profit organization with its office in Freiburg, Germany. This philanthropic institution supports the Sciences, Humanities and Arts primarily by providing an open-access forum for the exchange of novel ideas and discoveries of interdisciplinary interest. Further objectives are to support scholars and artists by scholarships and awards.

The Academy is working with the Journal of Sciences, Humanities and Arts, JOSHA that provides an open access, non-profit forum for the publication of articles of interdisciplinary relevance.

With issue No 3/2017 , JOSHA is starting a new project, the DEMETRIOS Project. It is our objective to open up JOSHA as a universally accessible, open access library to all languages and countries. JOSHA will focus initially on publishing and providing open-access to textbooks in any field of Science, Humanities and the Arts, to students and readers worldwide. JOSHA will publish textbooks in any language after appropriate peer review by experts in the field knowledgeable of the respective language. The IASHA Board and JOSHA Editors feel that there is an urgent need to provide access to these materials especially to students and scientists in low and middle-income countries, where textbooks are simply unaffordable by most students.

If you are a frequent reader or you have published in JOSHA, we invite you to apply for membership and support IASHA.

If you would like to support the DEMETRIOS initiative, join the IASHA Demetrios Circle by making a tax-deductible donation of € 1000 or more to  IASHA e.V..
