On an annual basis, ASF publishes Scandinavian Review magazine, Scan newsletter, the Annual Report, and The Longboat (Adobe PDF), a newsletter for ASF Fellows and Former Fellows. A directory of the 3,300 American and Scandinavian fellows since 1912 was published in 1998 to commemorate the 85th anniversary of ASF’s fellowship and grant program.

Scandinavian Review

ASF’s magazine, Scandinavian Review, covers all aspects of life in contemporary Scandinavia with emphasis on areas in which Scandinavian achievement is renowned: art and design, industrial development, commercial, political, economic and social innovation. Leading journalists and writers on both sides of the Atlantic participate in the challenging task of making Scandinavia better known and understood.

The magazine offers readers information about the five Nordic countries that is rarely found in the American news media. Scandinavian Review is a benefit of ASF membership, or you may receive it by subscription. To give you an idea of the magazine’s scope, the covers and a sample article from each issue are included and may be also printed.

Scandinavian Review accepts paid advertisements. For rates and contract sheet, please contact the editor at the address above or by e-mail: editor@amscan.org.

Annual Report

The ASF’s Annual Report provides an overview of all aspects of the ASF’s work, with detailed information on activities. It includes listings of all the fellowships and grants, as well as excerpts from the Foundation’s annual financial statements. The current issue of the Annual Report covers the period of July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2011, and is available for download.



Scan is the ASF’s quarterly newsletter, published seasonally. Unlike Scandinavian Review to which a person may subscribe independently, the newsletter is available only as a membership benefit to those who join the Foundation. The 12-page newsletter covers the Foundation’s activities and cultural programs at Scandinavia House. The “News of Scandinavia” section provides capsule accounts of current events in all five Nordic countries, and the National Calendar lists selected Scandinavian events across the United States.
