The handbook is published every two years. The current edition (19th edition) - published in 2007 - provides detailed data on over 9200 university institutions worldwide, their structure, courses of study, degrees and diplomas, etc. The next edition will be published in 2008.

A copy of the Handbook is sent for free to all IAU members. Others can order the publication at Palgrave Macmillan.
