The Publications Committee is directly responsible for the following four series:

 

The Sodertörn Academic Studies series is mainly comprised of monographs and anthologies that present definitive research results from projects carried out at Södertörn University. The series are open to all fields of research and disciplines, but as a large majority of research at Södertörn University focuses on the Baltic Sea Region this series addresses the social, political, economic and cultural developments in countries bordering the Baltic Sea. To see the latest books in the university's series go to Publications series.

The Publications Committee has granted permission for the starting of a number of other series that are connected to specific subjects or departments.
