The Mongolia Society was founded in late 1961 as a private, non-profit, non-political organization interested in promoting and furthering the study of Mongolia, its history, language, and culture. The aims of the Society are exclusively scholarly, educational, and charitable.
We publish Mongolian Studies: Journal of the Mongolia Society, Mongolia Survey, and two series entitled Special Papers (devoted to the republication of rare works in Mongolian or related languages) and Occasional Papers (scholarly studies). The Society has also printed and reprinted important dictionaries. One of the major obstacles encountered by Western students of Mongolia has been the difficulty in obtaining Mongolian publication on a regular basis. Since 1975, therefore, The Mongolia Society has been active in the importation and North American distribution of scholarly books and periodicals, as well as prints, slide transparencies, and recordings, from Mongolia, Inner Mongolia, and Buriatia.
During our more than forty years of existence , The Mongolia Society has become a center for information on Mongolia, as well as groups and institutions in China, Japan, and Europe.
Membership in The Mongolia Society is open to individuals, foundations, libraries, corporations, and other organizations interested in advancing its aims.
Those in good standing, in a given membership year, will receive any regular publications (Mongolian Studies, Mongolia Survey); library members will additionally receive copies of our Occasional Papers series.
Membership is by calendar year and new members joining near the end of a year are usually placed on the rolls for the coming period, often with a complimentary copy of a recent publication.
The Society’s annual business meeting is often held in conjunction with other professional groups (e.g. American Oriental Society, Association for Asian Studies) in major cities in early spring. Members join the Society to promote its aims and goals, not merely for receipt of publications.
