Compiled for the Journal of Buddhist Ethics.
The Journal of Global Buddhism has been established to promote the study of Buddhism's globalization and its transcontinental interrelatedness. This aim shall be achieved through the publication of research articles, discussions, critical notes, bulletins, and reviews; additionally, the journal will function as an independent research tool itself, emphasizing surveys, the creation of databases, empirical investigations, and through the presentation of ongoing research projects.
The Journal of Buddhist Ethics is the first academic journal dedicated entirely to Buddhist ethics. We promote the study of Buddhist ethics through the publication of research and book reviews and by hosting occasional online conferences.
From the point of view of reasonable probability the evidence seems to favour some kind of median chronology and we should no doubt speak of a date for the Buddha's Mahaparinibbana of c.400 B.C.
Contemporary Buddhism publishes articles on the current state of Buddhism from across the human sciences. The journal presents work from philosophers, theologians, historians, psychologists, anthropologists, sociologists and political scientists. Contemporary Buddhism examines the historical, doctrinal and political developments that have formed contemporary versions of Buddhism.
