"Azerbaijan International" is a quarterly magazine that features articles about Azerbaijan written in English.

Azerbaijan International is an independent magazine committed to the discussion of issues related to Azerbaijanis around the world. It was established in 1993 shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union when Azerbaijan gained its independence. Since then, it has been published quarterly in English with occasional articles in Azeri (Latin and sometimes even the Arabic script). The magazine has offices in Los Angeles and Baku.

Each issue includes about 100-colored pages and relates to a specific theme-related topic especially related to culture and social issues including art, music, literature, folklore, architecture, archaeology, health, environment, international relations, business, trends and transitions.

Its target audience is international readers in the business, diplomatic and academic communities. However, the magazine has also researched and published extensively about significant topics that are not well known to Azerbaijanis such as the story of how photojounalist Reza from Paris smuggled himself into Azerbaijan to document the tragic events [ [http://azer.com/aiweb/categories/magazine/61_folder/61_articles/61_blackjanuary.html Black January - Baku 1990: Behind the Scenes - A Photojournalist's Perspective] Azerbaijan International Magazine, Winter 2002 (10.4)] of Black January 1990 when Soviet troops attacked civilians in the streets and how he succeeded in releasing these photos worldwide. Other unique articles include research about the discovery and decipherment of the Caucasian Albanian (Old Udi) [http://www.azer.com/aiweb/categories/magazine/ai113_folder/113_articles/113_zaza_script_ashes.html azer.com] in Mt.
