The Študijné zvesti AÚ SAV journal publishes studies focused on the topics of archaeology from prehistory to the Middle Ages, anthropology, archaeobotany, archaeozoology, archaeometry, geophysics, numismatics, applied geodetic and 3D methods. Published works deal with results of field archaeological activities (investigations, surveys, aerial archaeology), analyses, preliminary and partial evaluations, methodology, and registers of sites and finds.
