What is IOTA Publications?
IOTA Publications is a department within the International Orthodox Theological Association. We seek to advance IOTA’s mission by bringing out cutting-edge scholarship pertinent to Orthodox Christian Studies as well as books about the Orthodox faith and practice accessible to the general public.
The Advisory Board of the IOTA Publications consists of fifty internationally respected Orthodox scholars, who also serve as IOTA group chairs. Given such a strong backing by experts, IOTA Publications is poised to become the gold standard of Orthodox Christian scholarship worldwide.

Our staff has extensive experience of publishing with the leading presses. We will market your work in the US and internationally via IOTA Newsletters and by our Co-Laborer Organizations. We can also guarantee that your book will be discussed at the IOTA conferences, which meet every four years. All accepted typescripts will be published in electronic and paper formats simultaneously and disseminated on the IOTA website as well as sold online at IOTA’s bookstore on Amazon.com. We guarantee that your book will be published within six months from the submission of the final typescript.
