Welcome to Academic Publishing
We are excited to introduce a new journal! Journal of Religion and Violence is an interdisciplinary journal devoted to the study of religion and violence. In addition to publishing analyses of contemporary and historical religious groups involved in violent incidents, the Journal of Religion and Violence publishes articles and book reviews on theorists of religious studies such as René Girard, sacrifice, terrorism, inter- and intra-religious violence, war and religion, and religiously-legitimated violence against women. Academic researchers with interests in these areas are encouraged to submit articles and book reviews. See our JRV page for more information and Table of Contents.
Our flagship publication, Alternative Spirituality and Religion Review (ASRR), is an academic resource on the ever growing list of new titles in the new religious movement and spirituality fields. Only three decades ago, the number of new religious movements (NRM) specialists could be counted on one's fingers, and everything that had been published in the field could be read in about one month. Since that time, the field has expanded radically, even giving birth to a number of sub-specialties (e.g., Pagan studies and new age studies). The explosive growth of NRM studies has been matched by the number of new publications. Major academic presses, from Brill to Oxford University Press, continually publish new NRM titles.
Alternative Spirituality and Religion Review is a review journal that enables both scholars and university libraries to stay abreast of the latest releases in this important new field. Each issue features several articles and 25 book reviews, spanning the broad field of NRM studies.
If you have recently published a book in any of these fields and would like to have it reviewed, please let us know! Email our Editorial Director.
