The Journal of Tibetan Literature (JTL) is a biannual, peer-reviewed, open access journal dedicated to publishing research, translation, and criticism on Tibetan-language texts from the origin of the written language to the present. The JTL encourages an exploration of the literary in Tibetan writing from a wide range of methodological and theoretical perspectives. 

The Journal approaches "literature" and "texts" in the broadest sense, so as to encompass multiple forms of intellectual and cultural expression. These include, but are not limited to, Buddhism, aesthetics, political thought, philosophy, religion, literature, sciences, and the arts. It publishes research articles, long-form essays, literary criticism, translations, conference notes, and brief communications.
