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 ... 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.
Most of the articles in this issue are in English, but some are written in Indonesian. An abstract in Indonsian is provided for English articles and vice versa.
