Leonardo, The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (ISAST), is a nonprofit organization that serves the global network of distinguished scholars, artists, scientists, researchers and thinkers through programs focused on interdisciplinary work, creative output and innovation. The aims of the organization include the documentation of personal and innovative technologies developed by artists, similar to the way in which findings of scientists are documented in journal publications.

The Leonardo Journal is a peer-reviewed academic journal, published by the MIT Press, covering the application of contemporary science and technology to the arts, and generally considered as the highest authority publication in its field. It was founded by artist and scientist Frank Malina in Paris in 1966 and began international print publication in 1968.

Leonardo/OLATS, Observatory for the Arts and Techno-Sciences, is the European sister organization to Leonardo/ISAST and operates Leonardo's French site.

The Leonardo Electronic Almanac is an international art, science and technology peer reviewed e-journal.
