The publishing activities of all organisational units and departments are joined under Znanstvena založba Filozofske fakultete (ZZFF), i.e. the Ljubljana University Press, Faculty of Arts, which through its activities supports the basic mission of the Faculty – the development and dissemination of knowledge that is the subject of cognitive processes and the encouragement of the critical and creative thinking that defines humans as thinking beings. With regard to the number of publications (over 70 per year), Ljubljana University Press, Faculty of Arts is one of the biggest publishers of academic literature in the field of the humanities and social sciences in Central Europe and has for some time been the largest in Slovenia.
