JOSA Journals - NOW available ONLINE

The Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia (JOSA) has been published continuously from 1960. It is the oldest journal on Asia currently published in Australia. In 2002, with volume 34, an index of the journal contents covering the 42 year history of the journal was published. That index lists 254 articles: 133 on China, 58 on Japan, 30 on South East Asia, 22 on South Asia, 3 on Korea, 3 on Mongolia, 2 on Tibet, and 1 each on Burma, Cambodia, the Middle East and Sri Lanka. The journal distribution covers 85 academic institutions worldwide.

The first and founding editor was the late Professor A. R. Davis, formerly Professor of Oriental Studies at the University of Sydney which has provided a safe home for the journal during its history. Every year the Oriental Society of Australia honours the memory of its founder by sponsoring an A. R. Davis Memorial Lecture which is printed in the journal.

To commemorate the Annual Lecture on Asian Studies, we would like to present an electronic version of the first lecture by Professor Davis at The University of Sydney’s Centre for Asian Studies not long before he died in November 1983:

JOSA Contents

The index (compiled by Prof. Hugh Clarke) is the first we have attempted in the forty-two year history of the Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia. We have provided a chronological list of contents, an index to the authors and a title keyword index. We have included all the volumes of JOSA and Austrina, the commemorative volume published in 1982 to celebrate the first twenty-five years of the Oriental Society of Australia. We have opted for the title keyword index rather than a subject index or one based on geographical region. The articles are predominantly in the areas of literature, intellectual history and philology with a very strong bias towards Chinese studies. Some of the papers deal with two or more regions of Asia. Variation in font style and designation of authors’ names reflects historical changes in the editorial policy of JOSA.
