Our platform supports three levels of collaboration to leverage the specialist expertise of Gāndhārī scholars and the diverse expertise of a broad community of scholars of Buddhism and Asian languages.

  • Edition Collaboration: Gāndhārī specialists can collaborate at a granular level on the actual reading and editing of a Gāndhārī text and the production of digital editions represented on this site.
  • Analysis Collaboration: Scholars in Gāndhārī studies and related fields can layer their own analysis strata on existing published editions. This may include linguistic, textual, art historical, or other levels of analysis.
  • Scholarly Forum: The wider scholarly community can engage in conversation about an existing digital edition through an online forum.
