BDRC Occasional Papers in Buddhist Studies (BOPBS)

On behalf of the Buddhist Digital Resource Center (BDRC
<https://www.tbrc.org/#!footer/about/newhome>), we are pleased to invite
academic papers on all facets of Buddhist Studies for the inaugural
publication of the BDRC Occasional Papers in Buddhist Studies (BOPBS)
series. BOPBS is an online, open access, peer-reviewed academic publication
series that will be one component of BDRC’s next-generation Linked Open
Data platform known as the Buddhist Universal Digital Archive (BUDA). The
BOPBS series provides the many scholars who cooperate with and contribute
to BDRC and use the material we have targeted for preservation with a venue
to publish the work resulting from their use of BDRC’s resources as well as
other original research. The series is edited and reviewed by scholars on
BDRC’s Board of Advisors and is professionally copy-edited ensuring digital
academic publications of a high caliber that are of immediate use to all
Buddhist Studies scholars and interested parties.

The series covers the following areas:

Papers on all aspects of Buddhist Studies in relation to primary textual
sources in any of the known languages of Buddhist textual transmission will
be considered for publication including but not limited to work on:
Buddhist literature, narrative studies, philology, codicology, epigraphy,
textual studies, textual collections, textual preservation, Digital
Humanities, methodological issues found within Buddhist Studies as it
relates to Buddhist literature, or either classical or digital approaches
to the study of any of the aforementioned topics. Critical editions and/or
translations of Buddhist texts are also encouraged.
