BÉFEO up to 2003 online

Thanks to the generosity of PERSÉE (Portail de revue scientifiques en sciences humaines et sociales), all issues of the BÉFEO (up to the year 2003 - not sure why they stopped here) are now online. When downloading an article (they tend to be quite large) it might happen that some of the copyrighted pictures do not come with it. They are however visible if viewed online. It is hoped that the Journal Asiatique will soon follow. Does anyone know more?

I think they stopped in 2003 for two possible reasons : the publisher may have given a date beyond which it is forbidden to view more recent issues. Or the publisher didn't yet allow them to put the issues online. this is explained in the FAQ.

There is a beta version of Persée 2.0 available here :

This seems reasonable. Do you happen to know whether they're considering putting the Journal Asiatique online? I think gallica has them up to the turn of the century or so.

Thanks for writing!

Unfortunately, no. I'm not aware of such a thing.
