Bibliography Of Asian Studies

A Valuable Resource for Asian Studies

The most important 100+ periodicals in Asian Studies or on Asia as identified by the BAS staff are indexed as soon as they are published for immediate inclusion in BAS. In fact, the total number of indexed journals is many times that amount. Selected Asia-related citations from many other journals are also included when applicable. In addition, various special projects have contributed substantial numbers of additional records to the database (among them journals on Southeast Asia dating as far back as 1779).

BAS uniquely also includes citations to Western-language chapters in edited volumes, conference proceedings, anthologies, Festschriften, and more.
