The Shiki kaishi (子規会誌) is the official journal of the Matsuyama Shiki Society (松山子規会) whose members study and promote the work of Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902), a major figure in the development of the modern haiku and Japanese literature more broadly. Born in 1867 as the son of a samurai in the Matsuyama Domain, Shiki moved to Tokyo to study at the age of 16 and began a career writing for the newspaper Nihon in 1892. He died ten years later, on September 19, 1902 after a long struggle with tuberculosis, and having written almost 24,000 haiku as well as many volumes of 31-syllable tanka poems, novels, prose sketches, diaries, and criticism. The Matsuyama Shiki Society was founded in 1943 by Shiki’s contemporary Yanagihara Kyokudō and meets on the 19th of every month to share research conducted by its members. The Shiki kaishi has been published continuously on a quarterly basis since April, 1979, and contains hundreds of articles on Shiki and his circle, including such figures as Natsume Sōseki, Takahama Kyoshi, Kawahigashi Hekigotō, and Naitō Meisetsu. The journal also features reviews of books on Shiki and bibliographies of Shiki scholarship. With the permission of the Society’s membership, Boston University makes its contents available and searchable for the following issues: 2-7, 9-13, 15-20, 22, 24-37, and 39-151.

「子規会誌」は松山子規会の発行する雑誌で、正岡子規の研究を推し進め、その成果を掲載するものである。正岡子規(1867-1902)は近代日本文学を発展させ俳句の近代化に大きな功績を残した。松山藩の武士の家に生まれ、16歳で上京し勉学の後、1892年日本新聞社に入社し記者として活躍するも、その十年後の9月19日長く苦しめられた結核のため死去。24000もの俳句を作り、多くの優れた俳書や評論を残す。

松山子規会は1943年松山で子規の同世代の柳原極堂が創設、以来毎月19日に例会を持ち子規に関する研究を続けている。「子規会誌」は、その研究成果を1979年4月から継続して季刊され、子規に関する豊富な研究はもとより夏目漱石、高浜虚子、河東碧梧桐や内藤鳴雪など子規周辺の人々の研究も掲載されている。子規に関する研究所の論考や子規自身の研究の考察と書目・資料も含まれている。

ボストン大学は松山子規会の許可を得て、全世界の研究者や俳句愛好家にむけ当該会報誌に自由にアクセス出来る拠点を作るものである。
