Appel à contributions, en anglais, ci-dessous :

The Geumgang Center for Buddhist Studies (GCBS) is calling for papers related to studies covering Indian, Tibetan and East Asian Buddhism, to be included in the academic journal Critical Review for Buddhist Studies (CRBS). This journal has been issued on a semi-annual basis since February 2006. Thirty-one volumes of this journal have been published to date by the GCBS, which is based at Geumgang University in Korea. All papers can be downloaded free of charge at Geumgang Center for Buddhist Studies (

The GCBS was selected and financed by the National Research Foundation (NRF) in 2007 as a ten-year project (Humanities Korea Project). Our agenda for this project was entitled “Inspection of the Cultural Processes of Formation, Transformation, and Reception of the Classical Buddhist Languages and their Literature.” Since then, we have released many monographs and research series, such as The Foundation for Yoga Practitioners: Buddhist Yogācārabhūmi Treatise and Its Adaptation in India, East Asia, and Tibet, which was co-published by Harvard University in the Harvard Oriental Series 75.

The CRBS consists of articles that were presented at conferences, guest lectures, workshops, and colloquiums. Almost half of the articles in our journal are written in foreign languages, other than Korean, such as English, Japanese and Chinese.

Consequently, our journal (despite its short history of ten years) was nominated as a Registered Journal of the Korean Research Foundation in July 2017. Based on this momentum, the editorial board of the CRBS is calling for papers that will showcase various researchers’ remarkable academic achievements.

We cordially invite scholars to submit articles based on the broad field of Buddhist studies, covering Indian, Tibetan and East Asian Buddhism. In particular, textual studies on Buddhism, or a topic that is relevant to the focus area of the GCBS, are welcomed. Also, critical reviews of recent academic papers and books written in the Western languages are most welcome. We publish the CRBS twice in a year (April 30th and October 31th), and the next volume of the CRBS will be published at October 31th, 2022.

We adopt a thorough blind peer-review system to verify submissions, and each submission is examined via the KCI (Korea Citation Index), which is supported by the NRF. Research articles will be selected for publication, from among all eligible submissions, through an impartial blind peer-review conducted by three specialists in the field.

Authors of the critical reviews that are selected for publication, will receive a modest remuneration. 

  1. Submission Guidelines: Concerning the style of the manuscripts, please refer to the Chicago Manual of Style (17th edition).
  2. Word count:

– Research paper: 5,000 to 10,000 words (bibliography included)

– Review: around 2,000 words

  1. Deadline: Papers, including reviews, will be received throughout the year, but for volume 32 which will be published on Oct. 31th, 2022, the deadline is Aug.31th, 2022.
  2. Language: Please note that papers and reviews written in English are preferred. Papers written in Japanese or Chinese is also possible.

* After being nominated as a “Registered Journal of the Korean Research Foundation,” the CRBS has been using the JAMS, a journal and article management system provided by the Korea Research Foundation. Please submit papers or reviews to the JAMS of the GCBS after signing up. If you have any trouble signing up for the JAMS of the CRBS, please feel free to contact us via e-mail at We will help you create accounts and submit papers to the system.
