Journal of Global Buddhism

The Journal of Global Buddhism is an open access, peer reviewed scholarly journal established to promote the study of the globalization of Buddhism, both historical and contemporary, and its transnational and transcontinental interrelatedness. We publish research articles, special issues (special focus sections), discussions, critical notes, review essays and book reviews.

The Journal of Global Buddhism welcomes submissions, articles, book reviews, of scholarly and community interest from scholars and Buddhists around the world. More information regarding our focus and scope and author guidelines can be found in our submissions section. If you would like to discuss a potential contribution in advance, feel free to contact the editors at jgb@globalbuddhism.org

JGB 20th anniversary

 
We started in 2000 as one of the first online journals and we have been going from strength to strength since then. As part of the celebrations, we have a new editorial board that balances up-and-coming with seasoned scholars. We want to thank past editorial board members for the wonderful work they've done in assisting the JGB, and welcome the new ones who have generously accepted to join us.
