Various $q$-extensions of the beta-integral and the integrals of Barnes and Cauchy have been deduced in recent years. See, for example, *R. Askey* and *R. Roy* [Rocky Mt. J. Math. 16, 365-372 (1986; Zbl 0599.33002)].

Cauchy’s residue theorem and certain summation formulas for $q$- hypergeometric series are used in this study to provide further extensions of the same integrals. Furthermore, various $q$-contour integrals are evaluated and a transformation formula of general character involving $q$-hypergeometric series of one variable is obtained.
