Information for Authors
Manuscript Submission Guidelines
The formatting of footnotes and references follows the author-date system in the Chicago Manual of Style 17th ed., 2017.
1) In the case of submitting a research paper, the manuscript composed of footnotes, bibliography, and abstracts with keywords (both Korean and English) should exceed 5,000 words and should not exceed 10,000 words. If it exceeds, the decision for its inclusion in the journal is made by the editorial board. In the case of submitting book/research review, the manuscript should not exceed 3,000 words.
2) The manuscripts should be prepared with MS Word in Times New Roman eleven points for body text and nine points for footnotes and quotations. Lines are spaced in 150%, letters in tracking of zero and horizontally scaled to 100%.
On top of the title, place “Critical Review for Buddhist Studies, Vol. ## (Month, Year).” For instance, when you submit a paper for Volume 16 of Critical Review for Buddhist Studies which will be published in December 2014, please write “Critical Review for Buddhist Studies, Vol. 16 (Dec. 2014).”
B. Titles in the Korean language should be romanized in the McCune-Reischauer system. Those in the Japanese language should be romanized in the modified Hepburn system. Those in the Chinese language should be romanized in the Pinyin system. The romanization of the title should be followed by its original language at its first occurrence (e.g, Han’guk Pulgyo kaeron 韓國佛敎槪論; Dafangguang fo huayan jing 大方廣佛華嚴經).
a. Direct quotations not longer than three lines are marked by double quotation marks (“ ”). If it is larger than three lines, begin a new line and with indentation from both sides without quotation marks. Quotations within a quotation are marked by single quotation marks (‘ ’).
c. Quotations from poems or gāthā up to three to four lines are included between other sentences, and those more than that are separated as paragraphs. For a quotation between sentences, lines are divided by “/” and stanzas by “//.”
A. Footnotes are numbered using a single parentheis (e.g., 17)). The sources are indicated by the author-date system of the Chicago Manual of Style. Abbreviations can also be used with the corresponding volume and page numbers as well as the register and line numbers (e.g., Schmithausen 1987, 1-2; AKBh 130, 10ff).
E. Citations from the Chinese canonical collections are listed in the following manner: Title (along with the chapter title) and fascicle number of the scripture/treatise; abbreviation and volume number of the canonical collection (“T” for Taishō shinshū daizōkyo, “X” for Xinzuan xuzang jing, “H” for Han’guk Pulgyo chŏnsŏ, and “K” for Koryŏ Taejanggyŏng); page number, register (a, b, c, or d), and line number (e.g., Zhonglun 中論, fasc. 4, T. 30, 2c20–21).
F. Citations from the Tibetan Tripiṭaka is also indicated by the abbreviations of the canonical collection such as “P” for the Peking edition, “D” for the Derge edition, “N” for the Narthang edition, and “C” for the Cone edition (e.g., P. 103, 15a2-3).
G. Citations from the Pāli Tripitaka generally follow the conventions of the PTS (e.g., “DN. II, 135” indicates Dīgha Nikāya Vol. 2, p. 135; “Sn., 342” indicates Suttanipāta, verse 342; “Vism., 542” indicates Visuddhimagga, p. 542).
H. Information from the websites is permitted only if it is academically valuable, and its quotation should include the full URL and access date (e.g., http://www.studies. worldtipitaka.org (access: Feb. 15, 2013).
F. Names of the East Asian authors are indicated in the order of surname and given name without using a comma when the work is written in East Asian languages (e.g., Kim Kŭmgang. 2014. “Pŏphwa kyŏng e kwanhayŏ.” Kŭmgang Pulgyo 20).
