The Journal of the Society for Asian Humanities (JOSAH) is the society’s flagship publication and has been issued continuously since 1960. It is the oldest journal on Asia currently published in Australia.

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

  • Please note that a selection of JOSAH volumes is now available for download from Informit.
  • For purchase of limited volumes please go to the Sydney University Press site.

Please visit the Information for Authors page for submission guidelines.

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: A R Davis, In search of love and truth
