International Journal for the Study of New Religions is published in cooperation with The International Society for the Study of New Religions (ISSNR). It was founded in 2010 and since then has been edited by Liselotte Frisk (Dalarna University, Sweden) and Carole M. Cusack (University of Sydney, Australia). From 2014 the new editors are Professor Asbjørn Dyrendal (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) and Dr Alex Norman (UC Davis Center for Mind and Brain).
The term "New Religions" can be defined in several ways. ISSNR and International Journal for the Study of New Religions have chosen to adopt a broad definition. Articles with subject matter as diverse as conversion to Satanism (James R. Lewis. Vol 1, no 1, 2010), children in new religions (Amanda van Eck Duymaer van Twist, vol 1, no 2, 2010), ecumenism and religious dialogue among Jehovah´s Witnesses (George Chryssides, vol 3, no 1, 2012), new ideas of food taboo in some contemporary Jewish and Muslim communities (Simon Theobald, vol 3, no 2, 2012), as well as gender and spiritual therapy in Japan (Ioannis Gaitanidis, vol 3, no 2, 2012) have been published in International Journal for the Study of New Religions since its inception. The journal is published simultaneously in print and online.
International Journal for the Study of New Religions considers submissions from both established scholars and research students from all over the world. Articles should be written for a general scholarly audience. All articles are refereed. Each issue includes articles and a number of book reviews. The editors will not consider manuscripts that are under consideration by another publisher. It is assumed that once submitted to International Journal for the Study of New Religions, articles will not be sent to other publishers until a decision about inclusion has been reached. Material must not have been previously published in exactly the same format.
