Paleoitalia is a newsletter in Italian, which, while still rigorously scientific in its content, is directed mainly at members who are not part of the academic world. Apart from more general articles, it contains presentation of museums of paleontology, descriptions of sites and itineraries, conference reports, summaries (abstracts) of doctoral theses. There are also columns dedicated to books, paleontology on the internet, miscellaneous notices, and announcements of conferences, exhibitions, and seminars. Since 2011 Paleoitalia has been substituted by the contents, maps and photos of the new portal paleoitalia.org.
The Rendiconti (Reports) of the Italian Paleontological Society are a series of volumes published to mark congresses, conferences and excursions organized by the Society and by other institutions patronized by the IPS. By their very nature, the Reports do not appear regularly
