​​MJI updates its publications every January, May, and September. All books are currently being updated.

We apologize for any inconvenience.


All publications are available in PDF () format. The PDF documents contain bookmarks located on the left side of the document to assist with navigation. To learn how to navigate MJI publications in PDF format, please click here.​ In addition, all PDFs are fully searchable using Adobe Acrobat’s search features.

MJI publications are also available in ePub () format, making them more compatible with mobile devices. Note that you must have an e-reader installed on your device, laptop, or PC in order to use the ePub files. If you use any of the ePub documents, please take a few moments to provide us with feedback by taking a short survey.
