The Pacific Islands Monograph Series (PIMS), launched in 1983, publishes scholarly works in the humanities and social sciences. The PIMS Editorial Board encourages submissions that address issues of concern beyond a single discipline. It is especially committed to promoting works by emerging and indigenous scholars. The series produces, on average, one book a year. Twenty-eight titles have appeared so far.
