The ICAC has a publications service through which it disseminates its own and external research in the field of classical archaeology in the widest sense.

Since 2019, the ICAC has two independent bodies that ensure the quality, scientific rigour and prestige of its publications.

Internally, the Editorial Commission is composed of researchers from the different research areas of the Institute and the officers responsible for the editorial process. Its main functions are the approval of publication proposals and scientific advice in the Institute’s editorial activity.

External, the Editorial Advisory Board and the peer review system guarantee the rigour and scientific contribution of the books in the Institute’s two collections: Documenta (print) and Trama (digital).


In addition to publication in print or in digital format, the books are available in Open Access (PDF format) nine months after their presentation. They can be found both on this website and at Recercat.

The ICAC is listed in the SPI (Scholarly Publishers Indicators), ranking of scientific book publishers in the area of archaeology and prehistory. This list is published by the Centre for Human and Social Sciences (CSIC) and is based on the opinion of Spanish experts in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

The ICAC also jointly publishes or collaborates with the publications of other bodies.


You can also access the collection Hic et Nunc, working from 2007 to 2016.
