Archaeology in Jordan (AIJ) is a new, open access (OA) report published online by ACOR every two years aimed at raising scholarly awareness of archaeological and cultural resource management projects being carried out in Jordan and to make this information accessible to a wider audience.

ACOR published its first issue of Archaeology in Jordan in November 2018, covering 2016 and 2017, which can be downloaded from this page.
