There are eleven AAS research stations located across the state, eight of which are university-based, and two which are associated with state archeological parks operated by the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. Each university-based station archeologist is responsible for research and public service in a section of the state, and maintains information on sites and projects and curates collections from his or her area. The archeologists at the state parks are responsible for their own research, as well as helping the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism interpret the prehistory and history of their park.

All station archeologists provide a variety of services to the general public, educational institutions, and state and federal agencies. This often involves working with amateur archeologists, identifying artifacts, helping landowners identify archeological remains, providing public lectures, and writing popular books and flyers about Arkansas archeology.
