Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia

In 1956 the Oriental Society was established to promote knowledge of Asia in Australia and to provide a venue for scholars to present their work. During the academic year, monthly lectures given by Australian and overseas scholars were reported in a newsletter called The Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia. After JOSA was established, the papers started to be widely circulated to subscribers, both private and institutional, in America, Asia, Australia and Europe.

The Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia(JOSA) is the oldest journal on Asia currently published in Australia. Peer-reviewed articles focus on China, Japan, South East Asia, and South Asia, but articles have also covered Korea, Mongolia, Tibet, Burma, Cambodia, the Middle East and Sri Lanka.
