bokst_DSThe texts are regularly published as books in the series Svenskt Diplomatarium (Diplomatarium Suecanum), the national Swedish charter edition. The intention is to make the medieval texts, often difficult to read, as accessible as possible. This means that they are provided with an explanatory summary of the contents in modern Swedish and that all the abbreviations in the originals are written in full. Additionally, the text editions are accompanied by historical commentaries as well as text critical notes.

The Diplomatarium books can be ordered through the National Archives online store.
