To quote:
The Journal of Buddhist Ethics is the first academic journal dedicated entirely to Buddhist ethics. We promote the study of Buddhist ethics through the publication of research and book reviews and by hosting occasional online conferences.  Our subject matter includes:

    Vinaya and Jurisprudence
    Medical Ethics
    Philosophical Ethics
    Human Rights
    Ethics and Psychology
    Ecology and the Environment
    Social and Political Philosophy
    Cross-cultural Ethics
    Ethics and Anthropology
    Interfaith Dialogue on Ethics

Very strange approach. Given that they usually sell there stuff and many many other thing, I really don't know what the purpose of this undertaking is aside of politic and image giving to people who like to identify them selves as Buddhists.

So I would be a little careful, not only with the use of the resources shared there but also about the content they spread. Most of them are simply scholars, politicians or social worker and really less independent voices. So really a mass of A-Dhamma you can find there.

Critical discussions and rebukes are usually censured on this blog as well, just for the case you wonder why there is no "critical" comment anywhere.

Stay away of "Buddhists" and those who like to define that label to justify their current understanding and actions. 

The standard list of arguments is always the same since Devattada and they are really not up to become disciples of the Buddha but simply label thieves.
