A Valuable Resource for Asian Studies

This bibliography is intended for students and scholars interested in any aspect, discipline or sub-region of Asia. Through its extensive bibliographical coverage, it is an excellent means for discovering citations and the full-text of Western-language journal articles, review articles, conference proceedings and chapters in edited volumes and Festschriften published anywhere in the world that deal with East, Southeast and South Asia and with the overseas Asian communities.

Several hundred journals that focus on Asia are indexed in the BAS. Many of the more important ones are promptly indexed once they become available. Articles on Asia-related topics from selected journals that do not deal primarily with Asia also are included. In addition, some special projects – among them one that focused on journals on Southeast Asia dating as far back as 1779 – have contributed further records to the BAS database.
