The International Permafrost Association publishes its yearly bulletin Frozen Ground as well as reports, minutes from its meeting and contributes bi-annually a report in the journal Permafrost and Periglacial Processes.

The past peer-reviewed proceedings of the International Conferences on Permafrost are the principal scientific output of the permafrost community and are made available by the US Permafrost Association here. The most recent proceedings (2008) are available on the USPA website.

The IPA also partners with several organisations on the publication of reports and assessments. Some recent achievements include for instance the publications of the report Observing the Arctic, and the Atlas of Northern Circumpolar Soils.
