Studies in Humanistic Buddhism (SHB) aims to become a high quality academic publication on Buddhist and Humanistic Buddhist studies. It publishes researches that account for the historical, philosophical, cultural, theoretical and methodological examination of various Buddhist schools, from the traditional period to the contemporary era. SHB concerns topics relating Buddhism with society, politics, science and other current issues as well as the exploration of its relationship with modernization and globalization. We also welcome studies that integrate various Buddhist canons and doctrines with different historical courses.


The Journal covers topics of the following categories:

  1. Hermeneutic studies of Buddhist canons in connection with the theoretical foundation and practices of Humanistic Buddhism;
  2. Historical and philosophical studies of various Buddhist traditions and schools;
  3. Theoretical and methodological studies;
  4. Case studies on topics relating Buddhism with society, politics, economics, charity and other current issues;
  5. Book and article reviews.
