The e-Journal of East and Central Asian Religions is edited by Dr Ian Astley, Senior Lecturer in Japanese at the University of Edinburgh, and is concerned with the way in which the religious cultures of East and Central Asia have interacted historically and continue to interact in the present. In particular the journal seeks to disseminate original research on primary sources that span both geographical and disciplinary boundaries.

The journal will publish once a year.  The first volume, Buddho-Daoist interaction in China, presents papers derived from a workshop on Buddho-Daoism, held in the Summer of 2012 under the auspices of the Käte Hamburger Kolleg at Ruhr University, Bochum, for the study of religious exchanges. As such, Buddho-Daoism is a term that has been coined to signal a variety of primary practices and beliefs endorsed by both traditions. The idea behind this meeting was to provide further perspectives on Buddhist and Daoist exchanges and mutual appropriations in order to get a better understanding of the close and continuous relationship that has persisted between the two religions from early on.
