Materiały i Sprawozdania Rzeszowskiego Ośrodka Archeologicznego (Materials and Reports of the Rzeszów Archeological Center, MSROA) is a journal  from the field of archaeology, concentrated mainly around the research issues of the south-eastern Poland, as well as Polish-Slovak and Polish-Ukrainian border territories. The journal has been published continuously since 1961 (since 2018 in the electronic form), putting an emphasis on issues connected with research at sites in Poland and in Central and Eastern Europe, regardless of the age and period from which the relics and monuments studied originate. We are also willing to engage in the issues of the field study methodology, analysis and interpretation of the archaeological monuments and archaeology theory.

MSROA is a forum for academic researchers and professionals – we are open to Polish and foreign authors, our objective is to present the latest texts from the aforementioned field, as well as the presentation and promotion of the latest achievements of the local archaeological community.

We do not charge any editorial fees or printing fees; we do not envisage any remuneration for authors or reviewers.
