He writes, in his General Introduction, "The present set of volumes seeks to reprint some of the more significant papers in Buddhist Studies of recent years that are otherwise available in the overwhelming majority of cases only in journals. This is because it is journal collections, and of course back copies of specialist journals, that are likely to be most difficult to find and access for many students and interested general readers."
I imagine that this would be good starting-point for your colleague to examine; Williams draws from a variety of journals, both common and obscure.

She is looking mainly for article length publications. I know this is a rather vague criterion but I wonder if anyone can suggest some resources that might be helpful. Even a listing of the top academic journals where Buddhist scholarship is published would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
