The Journal of Youth and Theology is an international peer-reviewed academic journal developed and originally published by the IASYM, the International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry, now published by Brill. The journal aims at furthering the academic study and research of youth and youth ministry, and the formal teaching and training of youth ministry. The academic efforts are rooted in the Christian theological tradition and ecumenical. The scope of the journal is to serve scholarship in the broad field of children, youth, faith, church, theology and culture. Research articles in the journal mainly have theology (both practical, systematic and biblical theology) as a core discipline. At the same time, contributions are often interdisciplinary, which implies theological reflection combined with e.g. pedagogical, sociological or psychological perspectives.
