The Caddo Archeology Journal is devoted to the anthropology, history, geography, and current activities of the Caddo Nation, an American Indian group with a historical range covering the four-state area of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. The journal began as the Caddoan Archeology Newsletter in 1989 and in 1996 the name changed to simply Caddoan Archeology. Tim Perttula was founder and editor from 1989 until 1993 when Lois Albert became editor. Tim Perttula again resumed his editorial role in 2002. In 2003 the name was changed to Caddoan Archeology Journal, and in 2006 the name was changed again to Caddo Archeology Journal. Stephen F. Austin State University is now publishing the journal. Along with archeology, articles related to the ethnography, language, history, geography, and current activities of the Caddo Nation are encouraged. Book reviews are also included in the journal.

The journal is published once a year in March. Members receive a copy of the journal with their membership dues, starting with Vol. 22 (2012). Papers need not have been presented at an annual Caddo Conference Organization meeting in order to be considered for publication.
