The Buddhist Forum now available on our website
M. Editor | January 30, 2012
The Institute of Buddhist Studies, Berkeley, is pleased to announce that the entire run of The Buddhist Forum will be made available as downloadable PDFs on the IBS website.
The Buddhist Forum was first published by the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (issues numbered 1 through 5), and by the Institute of Buddhist Studies, Tring, UK (number 6). The series made public research initially presented as part the series of seminars hosted by SOAS between 1987 and 1997, also known as the Buddhist Forum. Over time the issues have run out of print, and become increasingly rare. It is, therefore, with great pleasure that as a result of an agreement between the Institute of Buddhist Studies of Tring, UK, and the Institute of Buddhist Studies, Berkeley, California, USA, that we are here able to present electronic reproductions of the journal. The process of conversion will continue until all six issues are available.
We would like to express our deepest personal appreciation to Prof. Tadeusz Skorupski (SOAS, London) for agreeing to make the journal publicly available via the IBS website, to Prof. Michael Witzel (Harvard) for technical assistance at a key moment in the transfer of files, Ms. Chenxing Han (IBS) for editing and formatting the files, and Prof. Scott Mitchell (IBS) for doing the requisite IT work.
