Since its inception, the AIMS organized three International Conferences with the active participation of over 400 scholars from approximately 40 tertiary institutions, over 20 seminars, hundreds of public lectures and published six monographs and collective volumes (Publications) and produced a referee Journal (Publication Series on Macedonia). Since 1990, the Institute had also produced two publications, (i) a bi-monthly newsletter entitled Makedikon Deltion (Macedonian Bulletin) from 1991 to 1996, and (ii) a 20-page periodical Makedonikos Logos (Macedonian View) from 1999 to the present day, outlining the Institute’s editorial policies and commentaries and depicting the activities and publications of the AIMS.
The AIMS has produced numerous articles and chapters in various refereed magazines, periodicals (Playing with the History: Macedoslav Irredentism) and collective volumes (Macedonian Identities) and its members participated in various European, American and Australian conferences (Conferences and Symposia). The Institute also closely collaborated in publications promoting the history and culture of the region in the mainland but also the migration experience of the Greek Macedonians in Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and even the countries in the Far East. The AIMS also collaborates closely with scholars, researchers and academics from all over the world on issues concerning inter-national relations (Current Macedonian Issues between Athens and Skopje by E. Kofos), (Greco-Turkish relations by S. Vryonis), language and literature (The Language of Macedonia by G. Babiniotis), domestic history and ideologies (Breaking the Deadlock by E. Kofos) and socio-cultural issues.
