Its classification under the Publication Forum is 2. The monographs and collections of articles in the series represent the most recent trends in language, culture and historical research, both in Finland and internationally. The series is divided into six sub-series according to field, each of which is the responsibility of the sub-series editor-in-chief and deputy editor-in-chief. Together, the editors and deputy editors-in-chief make up the Studia Fennica editorial committee.
- Studia Fennica Anthropologica is a contribution to international scholarly knowledge in the field of social and cultural anthropology. It seeks to present novel theoretical arguments and to ground them in sufficient ethnographic materials to reflect the diversity of the contemporary world.
- Studia Fennica Ethnologica focuses on European ethnology and related disciplines with a cross-disciplinary approach in cultural analysis and ethnography. We welcome ethnological analyses of both past, present and future phenomena based on theoretical and methodological discussions.
- Studia Fennica Folkloristica is an international forum for folklore research. It publishes both monographs and edited volumes on folklore, folklife, mythology, and oral history. The series welcomes both theoretical analyses and empirical studies on the expressive cultures of the world.
- Studia Fennica Historica is an international peer reviewed series for monographs and edited volumes in historical studies, mainly for contributions connected with Finland or with a comparative or transnational perspective involving Finnish history, but also for studies on general European history. All historical periods from ancient times to contemporary history can be considered. Only exceptionally high-level doctoral dissertations that have gone through substantial rewriting can be accepted. Edited volumes must consist of an extensive introduction and integrated chapters, not separate articles.
- Studia Fennica Linguistica presents Finnish research on linguistics topics to the international audience. The series embraces all fields of linguistics, from onomastics to interactional studies, and highlights work on the languages of Finland, and on Finnish and its cognate languages.
- Studia Fennica Litteraria offers a publication venue for studies on Finnish literature. The vision of the series is comparative: the volumes aim at creating dialogue between the study on Finnish and European literatures and at spreading Finnish literature research abroad.
The works published in the SKS academic series are also available at the SKS online store.
Manuscripts that are submitted to the SKS academic series are assessed by the publishing committees after internal review. The committee for each series will nominate at least two expert reviewers for peer-reviewable manuscripts and provide their assessment of the manuscript based on the statements of the nominated experts.
The SKS publishing coordinator acts as the publishing committees’ secretary, taking care of the reviewer system as well as the archiving of the manuscripts and statements. The publishing coordinator is responsible for coordinating the peer review process for SKS’ Finnish-language academic series and acts as the liaison between authors and expert reviewers. The editor or deputy editor-in-chief of each Studia Fennica series is responsible for coordinating their peer review processes.

The SKS publishing committee goes through the manuscripts that are submitted for the SKST and Tietolipas series and nominates the related expert reviewers.
