Quick Reference Sources for Southeast Asia: Periodicals: General Southeast Asia

Based on a printed handout originally created by Allen Riedy (previous curator of the Southeast Asia Collections), this guide offers basic sources of information for Southeast Asia and the countries of SEA.


The Echols Collection on Southeast Asia includes more than 80,000 serials volumes and receives more than 4000 active titles. For indexing of journals, see the library guide Periodical Indexes for Southeast, East, and South Asia which includes indexing sources for individual countries as well as for the three regions. 

A selection of current research and popular periodicals is located in the Southeast Asia section of the Asia Reading Room periodical shelves.  Keep in mind that this selection of titles is a small number of the total current journal subscriptions of the Echols Collection.  Please check the library catalog for details on the location and holdings for titles of specific periodicals

The list here contains titles of general-interest Southeast Asia periodicals whose current issues are in the Kroch Library Asia Reading Room.  Some have online access as well as print; the "C" indicates Cornell-only access to the online resource.
