[INDOLOGY] Journal of Gandhāran Buddhist Texts

Dear Madhav,

The interactive and dynamic nature of these fully digital articles means that they cannot be easily “flattened” into conventional pdf format. This is in contrast to the first generation of online journals where articles are essentially electronic forms of conventional publications which can be downloaded and printed as such.

However, components of these articles such as the edition in its various manifestations (diplomatic, reconstructed, hybrid), chāyā, translation, and glossary can be exported via the Tool Pane.

We have a guide page available on the site for how to use digital editions https://gandhari-texts.sydney.edu.au/edition/anavatapta-gatha/#guide. This will be improved as we develop the journal.

Best wishes

Hi Mark,

     Is there a way to download this article as a pdf. Somehow, it is not clear to me from the website. Best,

Dear list members,

The latest issue of the peer-reviewed electronic Journal of Gandhāran Buddhist Texts<https://openjournals.library.sydney.edu.au/index.php/JGBT/index> has just been released, representing a fully interactive digital edition of a Gāndhārī version of the Anavatapta-gāthā, RS14 of the Robert Senior collection of Kharoṣṭhī manuscripts:

“RS14.01 Anavatapta-gāthā Sutra,” edited by Richard Salomon and Stephanie Majcher:

As noted for previous articles, the framing content for this is minimal with the reader being referred to print publications for further details and analysis.

For those who have not visited the JGBT before, some of the features and resources provided by these digital editions are:

  *   ability to switch between diplomatic, reconstruction, and hybrid editions
  *   ability to easily align the edition, English translation and Sanskrit chāyā
  *   full glossary
  *   interactive image and text with a word selected in the edition being highlighted by segments in the image
  *   ability to reveal the grammatical status, Pali and Sanskrit cognates, etc., of each word by double clicking on each word in the text
  *   palaeographic report
  *   ability to export the editions in standards-based formats (TEI, HTML, etc.)
  *   additional resources such as downloadable colour and infrared images of the manuscript or inscription, images of select reconstructed sections, and related images such as historical images and images of the manuscript in the process of being conserved
  *   reference to a companion print publication, such as a journal article or a volume in the Gandhāran Buddhist Text (GBT) series (University of Washington Press). Companion publications may have a DOI link to this electronic publication
  *   facility for readers’ comments/feedback to be added.

We invite submissions of Gāndhārī and Sanskrit textual material (manuscripts, inscriptions, etc.) from the Greater Gandhāran region. Guidelines for submission, with various options for authors to onboard their texts into the journal are available upon application. For further details, contact Mark Allon: mark.allon at sydney.edu.au<mailto:mark.allon at sydney.edu.au>.
