Bibliography of Asian studies: change of platform

The Bibliography of Asian studies has long been hosted by the Association of Asian studies on the site here:

The Bibliography is now hosted on the EBSCOHost platform here:,shib&profile=ehost&defaultdb=bas

We will be switching our links to the EBSCOHost platform from November 1 2016 when our current subscription to the Bibliography on the Association of Asian Studies site expires.   Links to both sites will be maintained on the eresources@cambridge A-Z and the LibGuides Databases A-Z until then.

The Bibliography of Asian Studies (BAS) is the single most important record of research and scholarly literature on East, Southeast, and South Asia written in Western languages

Bibliography of Asian Studies (BAS) contains nearly 900,000 records on all subjects (especially in the humanities and the social sciences) pertaining to East, Southeast, and South Asia published worldwide from 1971 to the present.


The most important 100+ periodicals in Asian Studies or on Asia as identified by the BAS staff are indexed as soon as they are published for immediate inclusion in BAS. In fact, the total number of indexed journals is many times that amount. Selected Asia-related citations from many other journals are also included when applicable. In addition, various special projects have contributed substantial numbers of additional records to the database (among them journals on Southeast Asia dating as far back as 1779).

BAS uniquely also includes citations to Western-language chapters in edited volumes, conference proceedings, anthologies, Festschriften, and more.
