The purpose of the Annual Review of the Sociology of Religion (ARSR) is to investigate the “new” role of religion in the contemporary world, which is characterized by cultural pluralism and religious individualism.

It is the aim of the ARSR to combine different methods within the social scientific study of religion. The ARSR employs an interdisciplinary and comparative approach at an international level, to describe and interpret the complexity of religious phenomena within different geopolitical situations, highlighting similarities and discontinuities. Dealing with a single theme in each volume, the ARSR intends to tackle the relationship between the practices and the dynamics of everyday life and the different religions and spiritualities, within the framework of post-secular society. All contributions are welcome, both those studying organizational aspects and those exploring individual religiosity.

The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
The book series Religion in the Americas (REAM) is a series of publications devoted to the study of religious influences within and between South, Central, Latin, and North America. A particular focus lies on the interaction of different forms of religion with the societies, politics, religions, economies, symbols, and cultures of the variety of peoples in the Americas. The complex theologies, philosophies, and contributions of their expressions and experiences throughout the Americas have profoundly influenced not only Catholicism but many other religions - not just in the Americas but all across the globe. Religion in the Americas seeks to bring to the forefront new and promising works that deal with these issues, particularly from the perspectives of Religious Studies, Cultural Anthropology, Sociology, History, Psychology, or Latin American Studies.

The series has published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
The Cognition and Culture Book Series provides a forum for the field of cognitive accounts of cultural phenomena and investigations that reveal cognitive regularities. The series will include contributions from experimental psychology, developmental psychology, social cognition, neuroscience, human evolution, cognitive anthropology, and cognitive comparative religion as well as cross-cultural studies that emphasize regularities. The primary focus will be on explanations of cultural phenomena in terms of acquisition, representation and transmission involving common cognitive regularities without excluding the study of cultural differences.
Research in the Social Scientific Study of Religion (RSSSR) is an interdisciplinary, international peer-viewed annual series, which publishes new and innovative research within the social scientific study of religion or belief. Contributions span a range of theoretical orientations, geographic contexts and research methods, though most articles are reports of original quantitative or qualitative research related mainly to the sociology and/or psychology of religion.

RSSR usually includes a guest-edited special section that allows networks of researchers to report studies in areas that are or current interest or which are innovative and expanding the discipline into new areas.
