Welcome to the OBC Journal. The Journal area of this site will help us keep you up to date on our plans, make available archives of published articles, allow you to give us feedback, and offer help if you want to know how to send in an article, how to subscribe, or need other information.
The Journal is published four times a year from the Journal office at Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in the north of England. Articles from around the Order are combined to make a publication of around 80 pages. From Spring 2014 the Journal will be available as a download from this website, and may be made available in ebook versions if there is enough demand for this.
For more information you can sign up to our new email newsletter at this page: http://journal.obcon.org/e-newsletter-sign-up/ and on that page there is a link to previous issues of the newsletter if you want to catch up on the news about the Journal.
The newsletter keeps you up to date on how we are moving towards digital publishing for the Journal, through pdfs available from the website, and possibly ebook versions available from amazon and itunes.
A selection of articles from each issue is also published on this website. For more information on our history and purpose and the kind of articles we publish you can go to the About the Journal page. You are welcome to contact us if would like to get a free complimentary copy sent to you, so you can try it out.
The Journal has always been a collaborative project, as we rely on people to send in articles, support us financially with their subscriptions and offer help in other ways, such as transcribing talks and proofreading.
Please look at the Offering help page to see how you can contribute.
