Scottish Archaeological Internet Reports (SAIR) is an Open Access publication which was established in 2000 by a consortium comprising the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, Historic Scotland and the Council for British Archaeology.

The purpose of SAIR is to publish freely accessible but fully peer reviewed information more suited to an electronic format than a traditional print journal. SAIR is a fully peer-reviewed Society of Antiquaries of Scotland publication and is edited to the same high standard as our books and international journal, the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. SAIR is particularly well suited to excavation reports of national significance, and is suitable for image-rich and data-rich projects.

In the future, the Society will continue to explore new technologies and develop SAIR to ensure that it is fit for purpose. In this way, SAIR will continue to contribute to the dissemination of quality, free information on Scotland’s rich archaeological heritage.
