About WSTB:

The WSTB is a peer-reviewed academic monograph series published by the "Arbeitskreis für Tibetische und Buddhistische Studien" (Association for Tibetan and Buddhist Studies), a non-profit organisation hosted at the Institute for South Asian, Tibetan and Buddhist Studies of the University of Vienna in Austria.
Since the foundation of the Association in 1977, the series was edited by Ernst Steinkellner. The editorship was transferred to a team comprised of Birgit Kellner, Helmut Krasser and Helmut Tauscher in 2004.
In 2007, on the occasion of Steinkellner's 70th birthday, a Festschrift appeared as no. 70 of the series, in two volumes. The introduction "Ernst Steinkellner: Imprints and Echoes" and the tables of contents are available for download here.
After the untimely passing of Helmut Krasser and Helmut Tauscher's retirement from the University of Vienna, a new editorial team was formed, consisting of Birgit Kellner, Klaus-Dieter Mathes and Michael Torsten Wieser-Much. Website
