The KNIR has its own series of publications entitled Papers of the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome. Published since 2017 by Edizioni Quasar, the series is a follow-up to the Institute’s previous series of publications, Fragmenta. Journal of the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome (2007-2012); and Mededelingen van het Nederlands Instituut in Rome (1921-2003).

The aim of the Papers is to offer a forum for a broad range of humanities scholars whose work focuses on Rome and/or Italy from Antiquity to the present. The main language of publication is English, though a small number of contributions in Italian and other languages are included. The four members of the Institute’s academic staff serve as the core editorial team. In addition, there is an editorial board comprised of Dutch and foreign scholars.
