The American Archivist is the leading publication in the archives field. Published semi-annually by the Society of American Archivists, this peer-reviewed journal is available both in print (ISSN 0360-9081) and online. The journal features research articles, case studies, perspectives, and international scene pieces as well as reviews of professional literature, archival technologies, and resources. Established in 1938, the journal seeks to reflect thinking about:

  • theoretical and practical developments in the archival profession, particularly in North America;
  • the relationships between archivists and the creators and users of archives; and
  • cultural, social, legal, and technological developments that affect the nature of recorded information and the need to create and maintain it.
Stay on top of the latest resources with the Reviews Portal, which expands and complements the Reviews section in The American Archivist by providing additional information about resources for archives and professional archivists.
