ICA Publications


Comma, International Journal on Archives is the chief serial publication of the International Council on Archives. Comma strives to be of value to a broader readership beyond the ICA membership and the archival profession at large. Content of the journal includes congress and conference proceedings, reports and studies from ICA bodies (branches and sections) and special thematic issues. The common focus of each issue is the research, administration, and development of archives and the archival profession on a worldwide basis.
