Open Access Journal: Journal of the Iran Society

 [First posted in AMIR 3 January 2011. Updated 9 December 2011]

Journal of the Iran Society
Founded in 1935, The Iran Society acts as a gathering point for those who are interested in Iran's heritage and culture. It is strictly non-political. Its object is to promote learning and advance education in the subject of Iran, its peoples and culture and particularly to advance education through the study of language, literature, art, history, religions, antiquities, usages, institutions and customs of Iran. The Society's principal activities comprise seven lectures a year on a wide range of subjects, publication of occasional monographs, an annual study day (e.g. on Persian carpets or manuscripts), publication of the Society's journal and an annual reception for members and guests.

In 2002 The Iran Society re-launched its Journal which had ceased publication in 1954.

It is intended that the Journal will be issued on an annual basis and will contain summaries of lectures to the Society, reviews of the Society's other activities, book reviews etc.
