the Journal of the International Association of Buddhist Studies (JIABS,
ISSN: 0193-600X) has a new website, hosted by the University Library of
The website offers full and free online access to the journal. Tables of
contents are available for all issues; articles are made available 60 months
after their appearance in print.
Currently issues 1 (1978) to 28/2 (2005) are fully accessible, and
searchable. Articles published up to 1999 have been scanned and run through
automatic OCR - full-text search is therefore possible, but limited
especially when it comes to transliterations of Asian languages.
For more recent articles the journal's production files are used. The
website also offers RSS and Atom feeds.
