Review of Religion and Chinese Society is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles and book reviews in social science and certain humanities disciplines. “Religion” is understood in the broadest sense, including various spiritualities and meaning-making systems of beliefs and practices. “Chinese society” includes those in mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, and Chinese diasporic communities in Asia, North America, Europe, and elsewhere throughout the world.

Review of Religion and Chinese Society is multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary in outlook and presents theoretical and empirical studies of religion in disciplines such as anthropology, economics, geography, political science, psychology, sociology, and history. It welcomes studies that compare religion in Chinese and some other societies. Preference is given to articles that are theoretically-driven empirical studies, although articles that are primarily either empirical or theoretical are also welcomed. The journal also publishes review essays of particular fields, symposia of particular topics, interviews with renowned scholars, and reports of academic conferences relevant to the themes of this journal. All articles are in English, and Chinese titles and abstracts are provided as well.The journal will publish reviews of books that have been published in English, Chinese, and other languages. Proposals for special issues are welcomed.
