One of IDP's partners is the Japan-based OTDO (Old Tibetan Documents Online). They have just published the third volume of their monograph series: New Studies of the Old Tibetan Documents: Philology, History and Religion. The volume contains 11 articles by some of the leading scholars in the study of early Tibetan linguistics, history and religions. Sam van Schaik's article, "A New Look at the Invention of the Tibetan Script," is the result of IDP's recently completed project on the paleography of the Dunhuang manuscripts.
