Publications

Since its inception, SAA has offered archivists reasons to read—and to write! 

The American Archivist was established in 1938 and quickly became the leading journal in the archival field. The SAA Newsletter started in the 1970s and evolved into an award-winning bimonthly magazine, Archival Outlook. And for decades, SAA books have nurtured and educated generations of archivists. More recently, seven open access Case Studies Series address closely-defined areas of archival theory and practice.

Our publications are driven by SAA members, who write the articles, case studies, perspectives, research pieces, book chapters, manuals, and thought-leadership volumes. The Editorial BoardPublications Board, and SAA staff vet the content and strive to maintain SAA’s commitment to reflect our core values and strategic priorities as well to cultivate new and veteran voices—all in service to furthering the archival conversation.
