Monumenta Nipponica, an interdisciplinary quarterly journal on Japanese culture and society, was founded in 1938, making it one of the oldest English-language academic journals in the field of Asian studies. Published as an international forum for research on Japan by Sophia University, Tokyo, MN carries both original scholarly contributions on history, literature, art history, religion, thought, and anthropology, and translations of important Japanese literary and historical sources. Early volumes included articles in German and other European languages, but from volume 19 (1964) English has been the sole language of publication. At present each issue contains on average four articles, including reports on research trends and source materials of note, and fifteen reviews of recent books on Japan.
