Databases \ Bibliography of Asian Studies

Up to 1991 the BAS included citations to Western-language periodical articles, individually authored monographs, chapters in edited volumes, conference proceedings, anthologies, and festschriften. Since 1992, newly published individual monographs are no longer being added to the database.

The most important 100+ periodicals in Asian Studies are indexed immediately on publication.
