Sir William Jones professed in one of his annual discourses that “It will flourish, if naturalists, chemists, antiquaries, philologers and men of science, in different parts of Asia, will commit their observations to writing, and send them to the Asiatic Society at Calcutta; it will languish, if such communications shall be long intermitted; and it will die away, if they shall entirely cease.” It is in between expectations (flourish) and apprehensions (languish) of Sir William Jones, that the Society is passing through two hundred and twenty-five years bearing the prestige of the oldest surviving publishing house of the country.

The Asiatic Society publishes books in different series, viz., Bibliotheca Indica, Monograph, Seminar & Public Lecture, Catalogues & Bibliographical Works besides some books under Miscellaneous publications. Moreover, it publishes periodicals, i.e., a quarterly Journal of the Asiatic Society and Monthly Bulletin of the Asiatic Society and some booklets on different occasions etc.

On the bicentenary of the birth of Sir William Jones (1746) the Council in 1946 resolved to open a new series under the title Monographs on special subjects. The first publication of the series was published in 1946 under the title Asvaghosa authored by Dr. B. C. Law.

Asiatic society in 1788 came out with the first volume under the title of Asiatick Researches.

James Prinsep planned to bring out a journal with an entirely new character. The first issue of the journal, The Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, appeared in March 1832.

From 1832 to date the Journal has passed three stages and entered its fourth stage in 1953 under the nominal change of its title from The Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal to Journal of the Asiatic Society. At present the Journal of the Asiatic Society is being published with attention given to new areas of research based on inter-disciplinary approach.
