We study left and right Bousfield localisations of stable model categories which preserve stability. This follows the lead of the two key examples: localisations of spectra with respect to a homology theory and A-torsion modules over a ring R with A a perfect R-algebra.We exploit stability to see that the resulting model structures are technically far better behaved than the general case.We can give explicit sets of generating cofibrations, show that these localisations preserve properness and give a complete characterisation of when they preserve monoidal structures. We apply these results to obtain convenient assumptions under which a stable model category is spectral. We then use Morita theory to gain an insight into the nature of right localisation and its homotopy category. We finish with a correspondence between left and right localisation.
