A scholar’s virtues do not just rely on his/her ability to conduct research competently, but also on his/her attempt to “make a difference” for someone, somewhere.
ISI publications are of three types: individual essays published by affiliated researchers; the classic Acta Semiotica Fennica series, and a new book series in Numanities.
ISI library currently consists of two main archives: a traditional one, featuring hard-copies of scientific books, and a digital one, featuring e-books, music and audiovisual files.
