JGB 2015 volume is online, with all new website

I’m very happy to announce that the 2015 volume of the JGB is now online. Even more exciting (in my view), we have launched a brand new website making use of the Open Journal System. This is a major upgrade from our old website, which had been basically unchanged since the year 2000. With the OJS, we now have an attractive new design as well as a lot of new functionality and features. I encourage everyone to have a look at the new site.

We have begun the 2015 volume with a special focus section on “Zen and Popular Culture”. Soon we will also be publishing a second special focus on the subject of “The Family and Buddhism”. Watch this space.

Here is the current ToC.

  1. So glad to see the new issue out. As he pointed out to me this morning, I misspelled Alex Soucy’s name in my review. Argh! Folks who go looking for Flowers on the Rock and Alec’s additional research work, please note the correct spelling for your searches.
