Welcome to the Journal of the Oxford Centre for Buddhist Studies.




We are currently moving the Journal over to a new hosting program.  If you have received a Renewal e-mail then please note that your current subscription will stay open until the end of October.  During the next month we will move you over to the new program and e-mail you with the new details.  Thank you.

This Journal publishes articles which enhance knowledge and/or understanding of any aspect of Buddhism. Whilst maintaining academic rigour we also work toward publishing articles that are accessible to non-specialist readers.

There will be other distinctive features. We will publish many book reviews and letters. We strongly encourage anyone who reads a book on Buddhism to which they feel attention should be drawn for any reason, positive or negative, to send us a review. That review will be published over the author’s name without being subject to peer review like an article. We shall make it clear that the opinions expressed may not reflect those of the editors. Anyone may reply to a review. We will thus encourage discussions, though of course we reserve the right not to publish any contribution we think may be libellous or untrue.

We shall therefore not be afraid of controversy, but hope to avoid bad manners or bad taste.

Details for submission

Articles should be provided with the usual scholarly apparatus. Footnotes should be used rather than endnotes. British English will be preferred to American English but will not be pedantically enforced. The preferred form of references etc. will be that used in the Journal of Asian Studies, but again, complete uniformity will not be insisted on.

We shall, initially at least, have an editorial board of five and an advisory board of nearly twenty scholars spread across many countries. The editorial board are:
