The Center for Maya Research (CMR) is a not-for-profit educational organization founded by George Stuart in 1984. Its purposes are (1) to promote research in the Maya area in the fields of anthropology art history, including archaeology, epigraphy, ethnohistory, ethnology, and linguistics; (2) to publish educational materials and research findings; and (3) to conduct small-scale research projects related to these purposes. The Center for Maya Research publishes the Research Reports on Ancient Maya Writing, whose subject matter includes, but is not necessarily limited to (1) interpretative works dealing with both Maya hieroglyphic writing and iconography, with emphasis on the former; (2) issues of interest and utility on the history and bibliography of Maya research; and (3) the presentation of new texts and, when deemed desirable, the revision of previously available drawings of hieroglyphic texts.
