ANHS JournalANHS publishes HIMALAYA, a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal devoted to presenting original academic research on the region and disseminating information (research reports, book reviews) of interest to those working on and in the Himalayan region. The back issues and digital content of the journal are currently hosted by Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Submissions to the journal can be made electronically via this link.
HIMALAYA began as a mimeographed newsletter (the Nepal Studies Newsletter) for the Nepal Studies Association and developed into a journal, the Himalayan Research Bulletin, more or less in its current format, in the early 1980s. In 2003, the journal underwent an extensive redesign and was given a new name, HIMALAYA.

The Himalaya Series in Nepal Studies
The Himalaya Series in Nepal Studies, launched in 2010, is a collaborative effort between ANHS and the Social Science Baha to bring the research articles published in the ANHS journal, HIMALAYA, to a readership in the Himalayan region in an affordable format. The series does not publish ALL the content of the journal; editorials, meeting reports, book reviews, conference reports, abstracts and research reports are excluded. The books are organized around specific topics or themes (thus excluding some articles that have appeared in the journal) and may include articles that were published earlier in HIMALAYA or Himalayan Research Bulletin.
Titles in this series are published in paperback by Himal Books of Kathmandu, Nepal and are available directly through Himal Books and the ANHS Kathmandu Research Center.
The Himalaya Series in Nepal Studies includes:
