RATS produces an annual postprints volume, ISSN: 2167-9851. The first volume contained presentations from the 2004 annual meeting, and they have been published as a series since then.

While not peer-reviewed, these postprints present a wealth of information about current topics in conservation as well as insight into conservation treatments.


We maintain a section on the AIC Wiki dedicated to Research & Technical Studies, our specialty group. There is also a section on Research and Analysis.
