The Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia (JOSA) has been published annually since 1960 out of what is now the School of Languages & Cultures at the University of Sydney. A peer-reviewed journal, it carries papers in a range of disciplines, including literature, history, linguistics, archaeology, media, philosophy and politics, as well as substantial book reviews. Initially concentrated on China and Japan, in recent years its regional cover has expanded to include Korea, India, Tibet and South-East Asia.

Lily Xiao Hong Lee is an honorary associate professor of Chinese studies at the University of Sydney.
