Full description
This on-line version of the Bibliography of Asian Studies (BAS) contains more than 410,000 records on all subjects (especially humanities and social sciences) pertaining to East, Southeast, and South Asia published worldwide from 1971 to the present. Through the 1991 printed version, the BAS included citations to western-language periodical articles, individually authored monographs, chapters in edited volumes, conference proceedings, anthologies, and Festschriften, etc.

Note: Since 1992, newly published individual monographs are no longer being added to the database, and users seeking monographs are urged to consult other general resources and databases (such as library catalogues at SFU and other academic institutions).

BAS continues to index the 100+ most important journals in Asian Studies.

Materials indexed: Periodical articles, individually authored monographs (to 1992 only), chapters in edited volumes, conference proceedings, anthologies, and Festschriften.
