The American Archivist
The American Archivist is published semi-annually by the Society of American Archivists, both in print (ISSN 0360-9081) and online. It seeks to reflect thinking about theoretical and practical developments in the archival profession, particularly in North America; about the relationships between archivists and the creators and users of archives; and about cultural, social, legal, and technological developments that affect the nature of recorded information and the need to create and maintain it. It is a refereed journal.

The American Archivist Online Supplement appears occasionally when circumstances warrant publication of peer-reviewed content that cannot be accommodated in the regular semi-annual issues of the journal. The supplement appears online only and access is unrestricted. The American Archivist Editor and Editorial Board, in collaboration with SAA, make the decision to publish supplements. Proposals for guest-editing supplements should be directed to the Editor, Gregory S. Hunter, at AmericanArchivist@archivists.org.
