The International College for Postgraduate Buddhist Studies, founded in 1996, is still a relatively new and small institution, but it provides an ideal educational and research environment for the philological study of Buddhism.
This is firmly anchored in the study of the classical languages in which the Buddhist texts have been transmitted: Sanskrit and Pali in South Asia, various Central Asian languages and Tibetan in Inner Asia, Chinese, Mongolian, Korean, and Japanese in East Asia.
On these pages you will find a list of all back Volumes of the Journal as well as their contents.

The Buddhist Scholars Information Network (H-Buddhism) serves as a medium for the exchange of information regarding academic resources, new research projects, scholarly publications, university job listings, and so forth, for specialists in Buddhist Studies who are currently affiliated with academic institutions. It is not a list intended for general discussions of issues regarding Buddhism as a religion, philosophy, practice, or lifestyle (there is a wide variety of lists on the Internet that already serve this purpose), nor a list where non-specialists may pose queries. People who are not specialists in Buddhist Studies can access messages from H-Buddhism through this web site, but they can neither subscribe nor post their own messages.
