The study of inscriptions and the production of scientific publications are among the specific objectives of DASI.  
In addition and thanks to the computerised publication of the whole epigraphic texts from pre-Islamic Arabia, DASI intends to move towards an overall perspective in studying this documentation, highlighting its most significant linguistic, cultural and religious traits.
Updated and systematic monographs and articles on grammar, history, history of arts and archaeology are being produced, as results of the multidisciplinary approach and competences and with the help of the DASI technological tool in the analysis of the material.

The scientific outputs resulting from the study of the inscriptions so far published are:
