Published ten times a year from 1985 until 1998, IFARreports included Stolen Art Alert and the authentication research found in Art Research News. Bestselling issues included articles on the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum theft in 1990, the Salvador Dalí print forgeries scandal and the role of the Center Art Galleries, on which IFAR reported from 1982 through 1994; and coverage of repatriation stories such as Turkey's efforts to recover the "Lydian Hoard" from The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Germany’s efforts to reclaim the Quedlinburg Treasure looted by an American soldier just after World War II.
