Launch of Yin-Cheng Journal of Contemporary Buddhism (YCJCB)

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Yin-Cheng Journal of Contemporary Buddhism. This open access peer-reviewed academic journal examines how Buddhist thought and practice can illuminate the major ethical, environmental, and social questions of our time.

The Yin-Cheng Journal of Contemporary Buddhism is published in English through Cambria Press and in Chinese through Linking Publisher. The journal is part of the Yin-Cheng Network for Buddhist Studies, a partnership between the University of Cambridge, Harvard University, l’Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales (Inalco), the University of Oxford, Peking University, Princeton University, and the University of British Columbia.

The inaugural issue (Volume 1 No.1) can be accessed at here and the ToC follows below.


Volume 1 No.1


The Yin-Cheng Journal of Contemporary Buddhism invites submissions on any aspect of contemporary Buddhism. Essays exploring the continued or renewed salience of “traditional” Buddhist ideas for emerging forms of contemporary Buddhist identity and practice are especially welcome. Essays may focus on any Buddhist tradition, country, or culture, and engage a range of methodological and/or interdisciplinary approaches (including but not limited to Buddhist ethics, history, philosophy, literature and narrative, ethnography, art history, material culture, race, gender, environmental humanities, media studies, and so on). Details on the journal and our submission process can be found on the journal website.
