Studies in Ancient Art and Civilization were created in 1991 as an irregular series which in the first place served as a forum for the presentation of the Jagiellonian University Institute of Archaeology and studies provided by its researchers. The series was originated by Professor Joachim Śliwa, who was also its first Editor in Chief. In the years 2010–2014 this function was held by Professor Ewdoksia Papuci-Władyka, and since 2015 it has been fulfilled by Professor Jarosław Bodzek. Since vol. 10 (2007) SAAC has become a regular yearly periodical owned and managed by the Jagiellonian University Institute of Archaeology.

SAAC publishes papers in the fields of archaeology, art and civilization. The territories covered are ancient Egypt, the Near East, Greece and its colonies, Cyprus, Rome, as well as other, non-Mediterranean ancient civilizations. Pieces on the history of the discipline of archaeology, collections of antiquities and the reception of ancient culture in modern Europe are also welcomed.

Until present twenty four volumes have been published, among them three monographic studies (vol. 3: Les palettes egyptiennes aux motifs zoomorphes et sans decoration by K. Ciałowicz, vol. 11: Pontika 2006 conference proceedings edited by E. Papuci-Władyka, vol. 18 Proceedeings of the Sixth Central European Conference of Egyptologists edited by J. Dębowska-Ludwin, M. Jucha, P. Kołodziejczyk) and four volumes dedicated to distinguished researchers from our Institute on the occasion of their jubilees (vols. 8 – Professor Maria Ludwika Bernhard, 14 – Professor Joachim Śliwa, 15 – Professor Janusz A. Ostrowski, 17 – Professor Ewdoksia Papuci-Władyka).

Since 2010 (vol. 14) the publisher has been Księgarnia Akademicka Ltd. in Krakow. Starting with volume 16 (2012) external review procedure has been introduced, compliant to the double-blind review process (anonymity of both reviewed author and reviewer; see our review policy in Polish and English). The referees are both members of the Editorial Board and other researchers. The list of referees of each volume is published on the journal's website. Articles can be submitted to the SAAC throughout the whole year, but the deadline for submitting works to the next volume of a given year passes on January 31 of the year in which it appears. Ultimately, the new volume of SAAC is published by January 31 the following year (see schedule).
