Journal of the Society for Asian Humanities

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.
