The Hualin International Journal of Buddhist Studies enforces a rigorous double-blind peer-review process to ensure high quality and original scholarly contribution on all aspects of Buddhist Studies that relate to fields within the Humanities and Social Sciences.

All private information is kept strictly confidential, and additional information may be removed to ensure anonymity during the peer review process. The editorial staff will not disclose any information about a manuscript to anyone and will exercise discretion when corresponding with other editorial staff, the editorial board, referees, and other subject experts.

The editors of the journal are responsible for deciding whether a submission meets the scope and focus of the journal before it can be considered for publishing. Their decisions are guided by the results of the peer review and may be subject to further evaluation by the journal’s editorial staff, editorial board, referees and other subject experts.
