European Bulletin of Himalayan Research

The European Bulletin of Himalayan Research (EBHR) was founded by the late Richard Burghart in 1991 and has appeared twice yearly ever since. It is edited on a rotating basis between France (CNRS), Germany (South Asia Institute) and the United Kingdom (SOAS).

From 2019 to 2023, the EBHR is hosted at the Centre for Himalayan Studies at CNRS in France.

Co-editors: Tristan Bruslé (CNRS), Stéphane Gros (CNRS), Philippe Ramirez (CNRS)
Associate editor: Arik Moran (University of Haifa), Book reviews editor
Copyeditor: Bernadette Sellers (CNRS)

The EBHR publishes in English with the aim of reaching a large audience around the world. The subjects covered by the journal range from geography and economics to anthropology, sociology, philology, history, art history, archaeology, and history of religions. This multidisciplinarity has so far defined the journal in its mission to be a publication outlet for Himalayan studies at large, across areas of specialty within the field of human and social sciences.

In terms of geographical scope, the journal has published material that covers the Himalayas within a broad definition and not limited to the geological region, but taken to include the Karakorum, Hindukush, Ladakh, southern Tibet, Kashmir, north-west India, Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan, and north-east India.

Publishing with and reading the EBHR is free of charge and all journal content is licensed under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 4.0 International License. The editors are currently working toward making the EBHR an online and fully open access journal with a dedicated website. Please click here to learn about submission formats.
