Founding documents of the International Academy of Sciences and Arts in Bosnia and Herzegovina (IANUBIH), state that the Academy's task is to encourage the development of science and art, preserve, nurture and promote scientific and cultural traditions, and expresses readiness for changes that are appropriate to the times and needs of the environment from which it originates, and in which it exists. The Academy mission and implementing activities are accordingly in line with the criteria, and specifically in line with the values accepted in world science and art. The Academy acts in constant pursuit of scientific truth and artistic excellence as the baseline criterion and ideal of its activity. Such goals require a strong and qualified membership that is capable of carrying such demanding tasks. The quality of the Academy and its members is unquestionable. According to numerical and scientometric indicators, it is the strongest Academy in the region. As many as 46 of the Academy members are actual or former deans, vice deans, rectors, heads of departments. 15 of the members held the functions of rector, and 15 members were ambassadors, consuls and diplomats in general, 11 members held the functions of ministers, 34 members were or are also members of various world and regional academies. These significant indicators point to a relevant high-quality structure of members of the Academy, not only in terms of gathering holders of important national, regional or world academic functions, but also gathering active scientists that actively and directly participate in the global scientific achievements, which is reflected in the summarized number of citations and the h-index. At the same time, it should be emphasized that a significant number of members are scientifically active within their exponential life phase. These qualities were the precise underlying reason for establishing the Academy with the aim of promoting science and education in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in the wider region.
