AHIF will continue to publish the American Journal of Contemporary Hellenic Issues the first of each year as a publication of AHIF. Both journals will be available gratis on the AHI Foundation website.

Also, the international outreach of the JMH has been enhanced with the establishment of associate editors in Greece, Cyprus, and nations that have vibrant Greek communities.
