Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science (JIAS)
The Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science (1987-present), formerly the Proceedings of the Iowa Academy of Science (1887-1987), is a peer reviewed journal abstracted in Biological Abstracts Index, BIOSIS, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, Chemical Abstracts service, Recent Ornithological Literature, State Academies of Science Abstracts, and Wildlife Review. In 2004, JIAS became available in electronic format through EBSCO. Articles cover all areas of science, however recent volumes have concentrated more heavily on biological sciences, conservation, and Iowa related research. On occasion, the Academy has printed special additions including the 2000 special issue Investigating Amphibian Declines: Proceedings of the 1998 Declining Amphibians Conference. The Journal is distributed to members and institutional members. A subscription may be purchased seperately by contacting the IAS Office.
