The Sarawak Museum Journal (100 Years (1911-2011 and 88 Volumes)



The Sarawak Museum Journal was first published in 1911, and still survives today, making it one of the world's oldest publications in the region.'

Its first seven issues were prepared and printed in England, but from 1918 until today, the journal has been printed in Sarawak.
The Sarawak Museum Journal is devoted to the advancement of knowledge in the natural and human sciences. It publishes articles pertaining to the Asian region in general, but particularly to Borneo and Sarawak. Generally, it will accept manuscripts from international scientists, but specifically it serves the need of local scientists especially those working with, and through the Sarawak Museum; to publish their research findings and to provide a forum for their scholastic discourse.

State Museum director Ipoi Datan said the journal, which had been in existence for more than 100 years already, had brought scholars to the state and other places in Borneo.

According to him, the journal, with a total of 88 volumes, had became a well-known source of reference among locals and international intellectuals carrying out research and analyses.
