Our Publications

The British Go Association regularly publishes a newsletter (now electronic only) and the British Go Journal, both of which are sent to members. It also publishes leaflets and booklets about Go.

British Go Journal A recent British Go Journal

History of the British Go Journal goes back to the late 1960s and it is produced three or four times a year by the Editor and his assistants. Anyone can submit articles or letters for consideration according to the guidelines. Articles are both technical and non-technical, including reports of tournaments and other events, problems, game analysis, reviews and so on. The game diagrams of recent editions are available in sgf format on this web site. Also included in the most recent are book and software reviews and some expanded articles.

An online PDF archive of all old issues of the British Go Journal is available here (the most recent ones are restricted to Association members), as well as some individual articles and reviews. Collectors can buy backnumbers (orginals or reprints). A BGJ Index is also available.

Newsletter Some recent Newsletters

History of the newsletter goes back to 1982, since when the newsletter was produced every two months and sent to members on paper, and more recently electronically. Included were flyers or web links for forthcoming tournaments. In addition news is posted on this website for online browsing. The paper version ceased in April 2012, with an electronic-only version being produced four times a year, alternating with a news page in the British Go Journal.

From time to time the we have also published a Youth Newsletter, but mostly Youth news is now found on the Junior Go pages.

Other Publications Some other of our Publications

We publish leaflets and booklets to help promote Go. These are made available to the public at Go outreach events and to clubs for help in their Go promotion. There are also handbooks (available online) for Go organisers. In addition some books have been produced by our members, such as one on Proverbs, a puzzle book and the British Go Association Song Book.
