All issue of the British Go Journal are now available online. Please note that the PDF files are often several MB in size, but no larger than 10MB, and may therefore have slow download times. Internal and external links inside these files work from BGJ157 onwards and external links in previous issues, but there are no links for scanned copies, i.e. issues up to 118.
Note that the latest editions of the BGJ are members only.
In addition there are a selection of individual articles from old British Go Journals. The html articles reproduced are the 'go-ish' ones - games (since Autumn 1999 in sgf format), tutorials and problems - whilst news, tournament results, humour and so on are usually omitted.
Printed backnumbers of British Go Journals are also available.
These archives are presented here as a service to the worldwide Go community. Feel free to read, study and print a copy of the pages for your own use. Making multiple copies of these pages or the information on them - in particular for any commercial activity - is prohibited.
The article pages were created by volunteers in a sporadic fashion and with the completion of the PDF archive this activity has now ceased. Each journal listed below also shows the month that the web pages or pdfs for that issue were last updated.
