Twice a year the Carl Albert Center, University of Oklahoma, publishes Extensions, a forum for discussion of the Congress. Extensions includes articles by congressional scholars, interviews with members and former members of Congress, regular reports on the Center's congressional archives, and historical commentaries based on the collections. Each issue also reports on the Center's current activities and ongoing research efforts. 

Each issue of Extensions focuses on a particular topic. Previous issues include:
