Publication Directorate

Book is the oldest heritage of human being. Human being used skins and bones of animals, Egyptian pipros and Chinese papers are all means of recording which is not insignificant pride. We are now sitting on the human being collective knowledge and we are using these knowledge which is a big and unique blessing. Continuation of knowledge is related to continuous interactions, its explanation and interpretation as well its renovation and reframing. Knowledge is not created once, and the knowledge created previously are not accessible so that we can use anytime we want. Existing philosophy of each university is production of new knowledge and exploration and valuation of previous knowledge. This mission is prompting universities to pursue publication specially printing and publication of books domestically. Avicenna University understands this important mission and the importance of book and other documents in the society, and established a publication institution within the structure of the research center of the university. Establishing a publication institution within the university is based on the academic needs of the society and university from one hand and needs of educated class of the society specially students from other hand.
