We are proud to introduce Dermoscopedia

The goal of this website is to empower and engage people around the world to use and promote dermoscopy.
Dermoscopedia provides state of the art knowledge and information concerning dermoscopy and has

We invite you all to take a few minutes to browse the site. Enjoy!

Dermatology Practical & Conceptual is the official journal of the IDS. It offers:

 – Open-access,

 – Double-blind peer-review,

– No submission fees,

– No page charges for accepted manuscripts.

Thriving Community

Our organization conducts a world congress every 3 years and sister society meetings every year during the AAD congress in US and the EADV congress in Europe.


The IDS was founded in 2003 by H. Peter Soyer, Rainer Hofmann-Wellenhof and Giuseppe Argenziano to promote clinical research in dermoscopy and to represent a clinically oriented international organization with a thrust towards helping and improving education in dermoscopy.


We welcome your participation in the International Dermoscopy Society!
