The Society's in-house Journal is Asian Affairs, currently published three times yearly and mailed to all members. Subscriptions can also be purchased separately from the publisher, Taylor & Francis. A sample article can be viewed on the Taylor & Francis website.
Asian Affairs covers a wide range of topical articles. Since its inception as the Journal of the Central Asian Society in 1914, it has carried a unique and first-hand range of articles including Sir Francis Younghusband's "The Tibet Conference" (notes from the 1914 Shimla Conference), the precursor to Seven Years in Tibet: "Nanga Parbat to Lhasa: The Adventures of two Austrian Climbers", and George Macartney's "Bolshevism as I saw it at Tashkent in 1918".
Asian Affairs now appears three times a year, in March, July and November. Editorial control is exercised through an Editorial Board working in close cooperation with the Editor.
Asian Affairs contains reprints of lectures given to the Society, articles either commissioned by the Editor or submitted for publication, and records of Society activities. A large section of each issue is devoted to book reviews, mostly commissioned, and this section attracts a particularly wide readership.
