Journal for the Academic Study of Religion

ISSN: 1744-9014

Formerly known as Australian Religion Studies Review, this journal is the leading peer-reviewed journal of the Pacific region dealing with all aspects of the academic study of religion. Now in its twenty-eighth year, the journal’s change of title reflects the broad scope of its publishing remit and commitment to presenting cutting edge research from both established and new scholars. As well as articles it publishes book and film reviews, conference reports, and the annual lecture delivered to members of its partner organisation, the Australian Association for the Study of Religion. Every second issue is thematic and calls for papers for upcoming issues can be found below under “Announcements”.

Members of the Australian Association for the Study of Religion receive the Journal with annual membership. For details please see the subscriptions page.
