About the journal
Religion provides a regular survey of current work in major and specific areas of enquiry. Its swift reviewing and crossing of traditional frontiers to encompass such related studies as psychology and archaeology combine to make it a valued point of reference for a growing readership.
Already well known for its strong and established interest in comparative and pioneering work, the journal has expanded its coverage of the varied disciplines that together embrace the history, structure, and general theory of religions of the world.
Research Areas Include:
Descriptive, explanatory, methodological, and critical studies about religion and the study of religion
