Since 1982 the Goethe Society has published the Goethe Yearbook, which has become a respected organ of eighteenth-century studies in diverse disciplines and which is recognized as a vital compendium of current research in its articles and its extensive review section. The Goethe Yearbook is distributed free to all paid-up members of the GSNA — see Membership on how to become a member.

Since 2006 the Goethe Society has been sponsoring a book series published by Bucknell University Press. The goal of this series is to publish innovative research that contextualizes the “Age of Goethe,” whether within the fields of literature, history (including art history and history of science), philosophy, art, music, or politics.

Finally, twice a year the Society issues a newsletter, the Goethe News and Notes, to all its members.
