The main purpose of ATINER is to organize and host International Conferences and Symposiums, facilitate original Research and produce Open-Source Publications in the form of monographs, volumes of collected essays, and journal articles. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other academic events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014 it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).
