The Sarawak Museum Journal is devoted to the advancement of knowledge in the natural and human sciences. It publishes articles pertaining to the Asian region in general, but particularly to Borneo and Sarawak. Generally, it will accept manuscripts from international scientists, but specifically it serves the need of local scientists especially those working with, and through the Sarawak Museum, to publish their research findings and to provide a forum for their scholastic discourse.
As the Sarawak Museum is a Government Department in the State of Sarawak, it should be clearly understood that responsibility for facts and opinion rests exclusively with authors of signed articles, and their writings do not necessarily reflect the views or policy of the Sarawak Museum, or that of the State Government of Sarawak.The Sarawak Museum Journal was first published in 1911, and still survives today, making it one of the world s oldest publications in the region. The journal has succeeded in bringing many scholars to Sarawak and other parts of Borneo and made the Sarawak Museum a truly field and research museum. The journal was the main outlet for the publication of research and field notes. The Sarawak Museum Journal is published annually.
