Armenian Encyclopedia Publishing House (Armenian: «Հայկական հանրագիտարան» հրատարակչություն «Haykakan hanragitaran» hratarakch'ut'yun), formerly the main editorial office of the Armenian Encyclopedia (Armenian: Հայկական հանրագիտարանի գլխավոր խմբագրություն Haykakan hanragitarani glkhavor khmbagrut'yun) is a publishing house in Yerevan that was established in 1967 and published the Armenian Soviet Encyclopedia in 1974–1986 and other encyclopedias in Armenian language later.

It was founded as a department of the Institute of History of the Armenian Academy of Sciences under the presidency of Viktor Hambardzumyan.

The AE publishing house also edited a children's encyclopedia, Who is it? What is it? (Armenian: Ո՞վ է, Ի՞նչ է) in 4 volumes (1984–87), the Russian-Armenian Polytechnical Dictionary (1988) and a Traveler's Encyclopedia (1990).

Since Armenian independence (1991) publications include titles on topics of such current-day issues such as the first Nagorno-Karabakh War, the Armenian Question and the Armenian diaspora.
