UP FAMNIT in collaboration with professional societies published two international journals: 

Both are open source journals and everyone, who is interested can read the articles on journals' webpages.

University of Primorska Press (ZUP) since the year 2010 takes care of the publishing and book business of UP and all its members. Its activities are primarily focused on publishing publications in which - most commonly, but not exclusively, university employees - researchers publish the results of their scientific research work and thus disseminate it to the interested public.

Here you can also find some Famnit published books: University of Primorska Press - Natural Sciences.
