PRI has a long and illustrious history as a publisher, dating back more than 100 years. We publish the scientific journal Bulletins of American Paleontology (begun in 1895), founded by Gilbert Harris, Professor of Geology at the time at Cornell University. BAP is the oldest continuously-published paleontological periodical in North America.

In addition to these regular publications, occasional Special Publications, which include stand-alone books and booklets written by authorities on specific topics, are produced two to four times each year.

Bulletins of American Paleontology is available by subscription and PRI’s stand-alone books (Special Publications) are offered by standing order. Back issues of all PRI publications, including those of the inactive American Paleontologist magazine and Palaeontographica Americana, are available by clicking on the series title here or at left.

PRI is also pleased to collaborate with the Paleontological Society in offering some of its back publications for purchase, including PS Papers, Short Course Notes, and PS Special Publications. Standing orders are available to any or all of these titles by contacting the publications office.
