The Association publishes an international journal, the Journal of the IASS, four times yearly, in print (ISSN 1028-365X) and on-line (ISSN 1996-9015). The months of publication are March, June, September and December.
The Online Journal contains digitized versions of all issues from 1996 forward. The tables of contents, abstracts, keywords and other article metadata are visible to the public, but one must be logged in as a member or subscriber to view the full articles and/or to download them as .pdf files. (The Free Sample Issue is available in full to all.) Using the Past Issues menu item near the top of this page you can access one or more issues.
You can also submit a manuscript to the Journal using the Submit Manuscript capability. For more information about the Journal see the Aims and Scope of the Journal of the IASS, or you can also connect to Instructions for Contributors.
