Journal Data

I've finished inputting all the article titles from Eastern Buddhist (but not the book reviews, editorials, etc.). We're over 4,000. -- Chuck

I've finished inputting all the data from Philosophy East and West--which means that we are fully up-to-date with JIABS, Eastern Buddhist, and PEW. The Journal of the Association of Indian and Buddhist Studies (INBUDS/JAIBS) began offering one of their three yearly volumes in English--including English author names and titles names--in 2007. So I have added those from 2007-2011. Now it's up to everyone to dig out the articles in less Buddhist-centric journals, and the chapters in books.

I've noticed there are a few articles from the Japanese Journal for Religious Studies, but I will work on getting the rest of the Buddhism-related ones entered into the database. -- Bill

That would be a great help. From today, I'm going to start working on Pacific World. I've written to the Journal of Indian Philosophy to try to get a copy of their full list of articles (I couldn't find one on the web), but so far no answer. -- Chuck

Thank you Peter! (...although I was half-hoping I wouldn't find it for now...)  Chuck

OK, Journal of Indian Philosophy is in (mostly, I think). It generates search results for individual issues slowly, so I instead created a list from major keyword searches--ending up with 282 items. We're now over 5,000. -- Chuck

I guess we should include the articles from the JBE as well, but browsing each yearly journal and collecting titles is a bit labor-intensive. I've written to Dan Cozort to see if they are willing and able to let us have the basic data file for the titles. If anyone has any other ideas as to a good way of getting this information, please let me know. -- Chuck

The JBE turns out to be an interesting case: Although it was the first major "Web Journal" to appear in our field, according to Dan Cozort, no one over there ever maintained a single list of all published articles. Maybe someone thought digitization would take care of that automatically! The only record Cozort has is from posts made to H-Buddhism, since 2006, which he says he'll compile and send to me. I've written to Prebish and Keown to see if they might have something. -- Chuck

No one has anything at the JBE. I'm just going to go ahead and do it. At least the format is uniform throughout the TOCs, so after I copy everthing to one file, I can just run a macro through it and be done with it. -- Chuck

I've added selected articles from the Routledge journal "Asian Philosophy", ranging from vol. 21 to 10. When time allows, I will add vols. 1 to 9.

Thanks so much Peter! Once we get the data from a bunch of journals entered, I'll make an announcement of our coverage on the list. I'll finish the JBE shortly. Afterwards I'll see what I can do with the Journal of Chinese Philosophy. -- Chuck

OK, the JBE is done. And I'm going to give the editors a nice present of a list of their articles!  -  Chuck
