Since its creation, the Arctic Institute has published books on the North. These reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the Institute which is mandated to collect and disseminate information from the natural, social, earth science and humanities.
Northern Lights Series - In 2002 AINA and the University of Calgary Press established a joint publication initiative entitled The Northern Lights Series. The mandate of the series is to publish works of a nontechnical nature from all areas of northern scholarship: the natural, social, and earth sciences and the humanities. The geographical area covered by this series is the North, broadly defined as those circumpolar regions situated within the zone of continuous and discontinuous permafrost.
Komatic Series - The Komatik Series was begun by the Arctic Institute in 1989 as a publication outlet for scholarly monographs of northern interest. Offerings in the series are geared to a post-high school audience, include scholarly citation and bibliography, and are peer-reviewed prior to acceptance for publication. (ISSN 0840-4488)
