The mission of Založba ZRC, the publishing house of ZRC SAZU, involves three closely related tasks: the production and publication of academic and scientific literature, the sale of books and reviews, and the promotion of the institute's scientific achievements.

Its publishing program encompasses sociological and scientific disciplines, publishing works in the field of social medicine and related disciplines. The publishing house stocks and publishes original academic and expert monographs, translations of academic literature, dictionaries, critical editions of primary sources, academic reviews, cartographic works, academic manuals, etc. In addition to books publications, Založba ZRC also publishes works on electronic media (CDs, free online publications) and audiovisual media (scientific-documentary films).
