The Himalayas are taken to include the Karakorum, Hindukush, Ladakh, southern Tibet, Kashmir, north-west India, Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan, and north-east India. The subjects covered by the journal range from geography and economics to anthropology, sociology, philology, history, art history, and history of religions. In addition to scholarly articles, EBHR publishes book reviews, reports on research projects, information on Himalayan archives, news of forthcoming conferences, and funding opportunities.
