Grifos is an open access, peer-reviewed, fully electronic publication series by the Finnish Institute at Athens, that was established in 2022, with the aim to offer a quicker and more flexible publication channel compared to the Institute’s more traditional print pressed Papers and Monographs of the Finnish Institute at Athens (PMFIA) series. In addition to the peer-reviewed research articles, it is also possible to publish shorter, non-peer-reviewed texts, different kinds of reports, literary translations, exhibition catalogues as well as review articles based on the events and lectures organised or held at the Finnish Institute at Athens.

The Grifos editorial board consists of the following members: Björn Forsén (University of Helsinki), Arja Karivieri (Stockholm University), Antti Lampinen (Nordic Library at Athens), Torsten Mattern (Universität Trier), Jari Pakkanen (University of London: Royal Holloway), Petra Pakkanen (FIA), Olga Palagia (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens), Tiina Purola (Foundation of the Finnish Institute at Athens), Giovanni Salmeri (Università di Pisa), Renja Suominen-Kokkonen (University of Helsinki), Vesa Vahtikari (Helsinki) and Marja Vierros (University of Helsinki).
