Open access journals - South East Asia and the Caribbean

Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV) offers free open access to backfiles of two leading journals, The Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences of Southeast Asia and Oceania (Bijdragen tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde)  and the New West Indian Guide (Nieuwe West-Indische Gids).

The two journals have existed since 1853 and 1919, respectively. The contents of all back issues, mostly full text, will also be made freely available through the journals' web archives. Published continuously since 1853, Bijdragen tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde is focuses on the linguistics, anthropology, and history of Southeast Asia, and more specifically of Indonesia. It appears in four issues, running a total of roughly 600 pages annually. The large majority of articles, brief notices, and book reviews are published in English.

The New West Indian Guide is the oldest scholarly journal on the Caribbean, published continuously since 1919. It presents English-language articles in the fields of anthropology, art, archaeology, economics, geography, geology, history, international relations, linguistics, literature, music, political science and sociology. It includes the world's most complete review section on Caribbean books, covering some 150 books each year.
