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 Fellowships & Grants 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, which is an ASF membership benefit, offers readers information about the five Nordic countries that is rarely found in the American news media. 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

ASF’s Annual Report provides an overview of all aspects of 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, 2019 to June 30, 2021, and is available for download.



SCAN  is ASF’s quarterly newsletter, published seasonally. The newsletter is available, in-print and online, only as a membership benefit to those who join the Foundation. The newsletter covers the programs at Scandinavia House, news from the Foundation, interviews with people of interest, and information about cultural events from around the country.
