T’oung Pao (traditional Chinese: 通報; simplified Chinese: 通报; pinyin: Tōngbào; Wade–Giles: T'ung-pao; literally: "public announcement, communication"), founded in 1890, is the first international journal of sinology.

It was originally named T’oung Pao ou Archives pour servir à l’étude de l’histoire, des langues, la geographie et l’ethnographie de l’Asie Orientale (Chine, Japon, Corée, Indo-Chine, Asie Centrale et Malaisie). It is published by the Leiden publisher E. J. Brill.

The first co editors-in-chief were Henri Cordier and Gustav Schlegel. Traditionally, T'oung Pao was co-edited by two sinologists, one from France and one from the Netherlands. However, the tradition has been discontinued: the current editors are Pierre-Étienne Will (French – Collège de France), Martin Kern (German – Princeton University), and Paul Kroll (American – University of Colorado Boulder).
