Overview



Aims and Scope


The Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion (JSSR) is a multi-disciplinary journal that publishes articles, research notes, and book reviews on the social scientific study of religion. Published articles are representative of the best current theoretical and methodological treatments of religion. Manuscripts are subjected to a double-blind review process.

JSSR does not publish review articles or articles geared toward clinical or other practitioner audiences. Substantive areas include both micro-level analysis of individuals' experience with religion and macro-level analysis of religious organizations, institutions, and social change. While many articles published in the journal are sociological, the journal also publishes the work of scholars in anthropology, economics, health sciences, religious studies, psychology, and political science. The journal does not publish theological treatments of religion.
