International Academy of Science, Humanities and Arts, IASHA e.V. Freiburg, Deutschland The JOSHA Demetrios Project With the July 2017 issue, JOSHA is starting the Demetrios Project. We chose Demetrios of Phaleron, a student of Theophrastus and most probably of Aristotle, as the name patron of our project. Demetrios was instrumental in establishing the ancient Library of Alexandria, probably the largest and most significant library of the ancient world covering all aspects of Science, Humanities and the Arts in many different languages. 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. We encourage authors and readers to submit their textbooks for publication in JOSHA free of charge and to alert us to specific areas of need. We will start this project with the Architecture Textbook by Professor Bujar from Albania, written in the Albanian language. The non-profit International Academy of Science, Humanities, and Arts (IASHA e.V.) in Freiburg, the publisher of JOSHA, and all its members will make a special effort to support this project. We encourage you also to support this important initiative by joining the philanthropic IASHA e.V. Association ( )“ or making a donation to IASHA e.V..
