Journal of the Society for Asian Humanities (JOSAH) was formerly known as The Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia (JOSA). JOSA/JOSAH has been published annually since 1960 out of what is now the School of Languages and 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.
