ZMO publishes a refereed book series entitled ZMO-Studien, which consists of monographs submitted by internal and external researchers, as well as edited volumes. In addition, fellows publish articles and monographs in the relevant international journals and series.
Since 2010, ZMO offers the two refereed online series ZMO Programmatic Texts and ZMO Working Papers. The ZMO Programmatic Texts publish wider conceptual articles engaging with the interdisciplinary and interregional research conducted at ZMO. The series provides a platform for authors to present and discuss innovative contributions to current theoretical and comparative debates in relation to ZMO’s programmatic research agenda. ZMO Working Papers is a series of publications that reflect developments and discussions related to ZMO's research projects. Texts are usually empirically based and regionally focused and may also represent intermediate results of research.
Furthermore, ZMO publishes biannually the Orient Bulletin which informs about the events and projects at ZMO.
