First published in 1972, the Irian, Bulletin of West Irian Development was a collaboration between Cenderawasih University (Uncen) and the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL). By late 1973 the publication's changed to Irian, Bulletin of Irian Jaya Development to reflect the official name of Irian Barat to the province of Irian Jaya (see PP 5/1973 in Papuaweb's governance section). Only one volume (VIII) of the journal was issued in 1979 and this volume was the first to drop "development" from the journal's title. Irian, Bulletin of Irian Jaya was not issued in 1981 and by Vol.XII (1984) had adopted a larger format (letter size) and commenced an annual publication cycle. In 1993 (Vol.XXI), Cenderawasih University and SIL ceased publication of the journal. Vol.XXII (1999) of the journal marks an attempt to revive the journal as Irian, Bulletin of Irian Jaya Research and Development, but this was not followed by further issues. In August 2002, the Anthropology Department of the Cenderawasih University launched a new publication Antropologi Papua which is available online via www.papuaweb.org.

Note: The pdf versions of this journal have been made from scans of the original documents. Shading is evident in the pdf documents when originals have coloured covers or when the original print on pages lacks contrast. All pages are legible and this is only a significant problem in a few issues of the Bulletin. For more information about reading PDF files, see P-web's technical FAQs page.
