General Information

The Association for Asian Studies (AAS) — the largest society of its kind in the world — is a scholarly, non-political, non-profit professional association open to all persons interested in Asia. It seeks through publications, meetings, and seminars to facilitate contact and an exchange of information among scholars to increase their understanding of East, South, and Southeast Asia. It counts among its members scholars, business people, diplomats, journalists, and interested lay persons.

The AAS was founded in 1941. Since then it has gone through a series of reorganizations to serve better the broadening disciplinary and geographical interests of its membership. In 1970 four elective area Councils — South Asia (SAC), Southeast Asia (SEAC), China and Inner Asia (CIAC), and Northeast Asia (NEAC) — were established to guarantee each area constituency its own representation and a proportionate voice on the Board of Directors. In 1977 a Council of Conferences (COC) was established as a liaison with several conferences throughout the United States which serve the needs of scholars of Asian studies in different parts of the country.


The AAS publishes the Journal of Asian Studies (formerly the Far Eastern Quarterly), as well as Resources for Scholarship on Asia, Resources for Teaching About Asia, and the landmark journal Education About Asia plus a monograph series and the Asian Studies Newsletter and the Bibliography of Asian Studies, The single most important record of research and scholarly literature on Asia written in Western languages.

Electronic Publications

The AAS publishes the Bibliography of Asian Studies Online, which includes the full content of the whole twenty years of the annual printed Bibliography of Asian Studies (1971–1991), plus citations for all articles from 1992–present in 100+ of the most important journals in Asian studies, as well as numerous other citations from recent years.
