Author guidelines

Indica et Buddhica is publishing monographs, critical editions, proceedings and edited volumes in classical Indian and Buddhist studies. Print and digital distribution is through the Ingram Content Group and Indica et Buddhica. We are always pleased to receive publication proposals.

If you have recently begun working on a book then we would suggest that you send a publication proposal as early as possible. If your work is already well progressed a proposal will still help with our evaluation of your project.

Proposal forms are available further down this page. They address:

sKyes pa rabs kyi gleṅ gźi (Jātakanidāna): a critical edition (Cover)
  • the aims and scope of the book and its contribution
  • the book's content (tables of content, abstracts ...)
  • how the book relates to other recent publications
  • the proposed length of the book, a description of illustrative material (figures, tables, images ...), the intended date of submission ...
  • details on the author or editor and contributors
  • possible peer reviewers


The publication proposal will initially be reviewed internally to see if your project fits with our publishing plans. If so, you will be asked to submit additional supporting material. The full proposal will then be sent to three or four colleagues for review. On receiving their comments we will decide how best to proceed.

We are happy to assist you in completing the proposal so please contact us if we could be of any help »
