The Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies is the leading interdisciplinary journal on Asia, Africa, and the Middle East and has been an outlet for academic research in the arts and humanities relating to Asia and Africa since 1917. It carries unparalleled coverage of the languages, cultures and civilisations of these regions from ancient times to the present. Publishing articles, review articles and communications of the highest academic standard, it also features an extensive and influential book reviews section.

The Bulletin is published on behalf of SOAS by Cambridge University Press. Full text of articles is available online via Cambridge Journals Online, and can be accessed from within subscribing institutions using the following link: journals.cambridge.org/...jid=BSO

Review copies

Books for review should be sent to the address above. We aim to offer a comprehensive reviews section highlighting new scholarly publications in Asian and African studies, but we are unfortunately not able to publish reviews of all of the relevant books we receive.

Please note that the Bulletin does not normally publish unsolicited book reviews.
