It is now published annually around Vaisakha Purnima (May-June).
IIJBS accepts scholarly contributions, in Hindi and English, pertaining to Buddhist Studies in a wider sense, in various disciplines such as anthropology, archaeology, art, history, philology, philosophy, politics, psychology, sociology etc., and in those dealing with texts and translations. It includes reviews, notices, bibliographical information and list of books received. Also, it reprints occasionally significant papers published in the past and elsewhere with due permission.

The editors reserve the right to accept or reject a contribution without assigning reasons. The Institute, the editors, the publishers and the printers assume no responsibility for the views expressed by the contributors. Books for reviews and notices may also be sent to editor at the address 76, Nandnagar, Karaundi, Varanasi–221005, India. Publication of reviews should not be taken for granted and unsolicited books may not be returned to the senders. A list of such books as well as those received in exchange by the Institute/IIJBS may be published along with their blurbs.
