One of ISAS’s primary goals, as a scientific survey unit of the Prairie Research Institute at the University of Illinois, is the dissemination of information on archaeological and historical topics to both professional and public audiences.

ISAS produces three archaeological publication series: Studies in Archaeology (SIA), ISAS Research Reports (ISASRR), and the Transportation Archaeological Bulletins (TAB). Through these publications ISAS strives to further educate and inform the public in the preservation, protection, and interpretation of the archaeologial resources of Illinois.

In addition ISAS has select publicaions from our ISAS Technical Reports series and several speciality publications.

Studies in Archaeology

Research Reports

Archaeological Bulletins

Archaeological Bulletins brings together research on similar topics into a single volume and provides detailed scientific analyses and theoretical insights on topics of interest to a broad professional audience.
