As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Quaker Studies is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series.

This wide-ranging and fascinating series supplements a growing catalogue of historical, sociological, and theological scholarship in the thriving and interdisciplinary field of Quaker Studies. Individual articles will speak to the broad spectrum of Quaker belief and practice, to the significance of the history of Quaker traditions, and to the many areas in which Quaker Studies contributes to other fields in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Work on Quakerism impacts both wider church history and theological debate, as well as current themes in the sociology of religion. The Quaker attitude to spiritual equality also engages women’s studies scholars, and the Quaker commitment to peace and social justice relates to wider issues of political theory and peace studies. As the field of Quaker Studies continues to grow and redefine itself, this series will make a significant contribution to making up-to-date scholarship accessible to specialists as well as to a broad academic community.
As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and Education is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series.

Religion and education is a dynamic and increasingly important area of work, intersecting the fields of theology and religious studies, and drawing upon the foundation disciplines and methodologies of philosophy, sociology, psychology and history of education. It is particularly focused upon religious education as variously conceived in different domestic, religious, educational, social and national contexts. Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and Education provides researchers with the opportunity to give an account of the most recent scholarship and to define and direct the agenda for future research. Written as single or co-authored monographs with an accompanying bibliography, each specially commissioned issue contains a 50 to 100-page article on a given theme, offering a critical and up-to-date summary of research, commentary and analysis. As ‘religion and education’ grows in importance, this series will contribute to making knowledge accessible and debate internationally informed.

As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and Politics is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series.

Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and Politics has two main goals. Firstly, it aims to provide a platform for the burgeoning scholarship on religion and politics that cannot find visibility within the constricted boundaries of either religious studies or political science. Secondly, it seeks to examine topics that are intensely debated in the public space from an objective, data-driven perspective. In doing so, it will offer alternatives to ideological or partisan positions particularly within hotly debated topics such as violence and politics, human rights, or democracy and secularism. In order to achieve these goals, the series will give priority to research that addresses contemporary debates on religion and politics in a particular national or regional context or in a comparative way across religions or political contexts.
The Interdisciplinary Journal for Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society (JRAT) is an interdisciplinary, international, online open-access journal with a double-blind peer-review process. It was established in 2015 with the aim of promoting the research topics of the Research Centre “Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society” (RaT, University of Vienna) in an international scope. Every issue has a distinct thematic focus which is approached from different disciplines. The journal aims at investigating the contribution of religion to the cultural, political, juridical, and aesthetic dynamics in present-day pluralistic societies. Vice versa, it examines the influence of the contemporary processes of social transformation on religion and religious expressions. The mutual impact of religious and societal transformation processes requires the collaboration of different academic disciplines, which creates an interdisciplinary research space both for theologians of different religious and confessional traditions (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Islamic, etc.), as well as for researchers in the field of Religious Studies, Sociology of Religion, Social Sciences, Law, Jewish Studies, Islamic Studies, Indology, Tibetan and Buddhist Studies, Philosophy and Pedagogy, etc.

JRAT ist closely linked with JRAT Supplementa (see JRATS)

Das Interdisciplinary Journal for Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society (JRAT) ist eine interdisziplinäre, internationale, online Open-Access Zeitschrift mit peer-review Verfahren. Sie wurde im Jahr 2015 gegründet, um die thematischen Schwerpunkte des Forschungszentrums „Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society“ (RaT, Universität Wien) in die internationale Diskurslandschaft einzubringen. Jede Ausgabe von JRAT hat einen klar bestimmten thematischen Fokus, der von verschiedenen Disziplinen in den Blick genommen wird. Das Ziel des Journals besteht in der wissenschaftlichen Thematisierung des Einflusses von Religionen auf kulturelle, politische, rechtliche, ästhetische und geistige Dynamiken in globalisierten Gesellschaften. Umgekehrt wird die Bedeutung von aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Transformationsprozessen auf Religionen und religiöse Ausdrucksformen untersucht. Die Wechselwirkung von religiösen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen verlangt ein Zusammenwirken unterschiedlicher wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen und eröffnet eine Sphäre interdisziplinärer Forschung. An dieser haben sowohl Theologien verschiedener Konfessionen und Religionen (Katholisch, Orthodox, Evangelisch, Islamisch etc.) als auch Religionswissenschaft, Religionsphilosophie, Religionssoziologie, Rechtswissenschaft, Sozialwissenschaft, Judaistik, Islamwissenschaft, Indologie, Tibet- und Buddhismuskunde etc. teil.

The idea and practice of public theology has recently emerged as a distinct field of scholarship that proactively engages theology with contemporary public issues. The global project of public theology has expanded the western idea of three audiences - the church, the academy and the public domain – and their inter-relationship to multiple publics. It has now become a global discipline that intersects with the emergence of a world Christianity. Now, in the Anthropocene, those three audiences should be viewed in the light of a concern for the whole of creation, including those other creatures with whom we share life and upon whom we depend.
A public theology seeks to be in creative dialogue with different academic disciplines, including politics, economics, law and security studies, cultural studies, religion, spirituality, the natural science and the social sciences and the study of globalization. It is sensitive to the emergence of new publics that arise out of theology’s engagement with other new disciplines – like astrobiology – which redefines understandings of what is space and what is public. It is also a discipline that welcomes the expertise of practitioners reflecting on public policy.

The International Journal of Public Theology, affiliated with the Global Network for Public Theology, is a platform for original inter/transdisciplinary research in this field. Manuscripts submitted for publication must exhibit clear and sustained engagement between theology, broadly construed, and a matter or matters of public significance.
All articles undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and blind refereeing by two anonymous referees.

How fast is the Muslim population growing in Europe? What is the role of fertility, mortality, and international migration in explaining differences between religious and non-religious people groups? How is religion changing our world today? The Journal of Religion and Demography (JRD) explores these questions and other relevant topics.
JRD is the only journal to feature annual estimates for religious and non-religious affiliation by continent, pairing them with scholarly analyses from diverse disciplines such as social science, demography, history, and geography. Each issue presents summaries of findings, sources, and methods, along with their implications for the demography of religion. All articles are peer-reviewed and the target audience is anyone interested in demographic trends and developments regarding religion.
The journal is a continuation of the Yearbook of International Religious Demography.

The Journal of Religion, Media and Digital Culture (RMDC) is a peer-reviewed academic journal, publishing three issues per year. RMDC is published in cooperation with the International Society for Media, Religion and Culture (ISMRC).

To understand religion today, we must understand how religious ideas and practices are communicated, learned, represented, enacted and resisted through media. Religion circulates through social media, is discussed in the news and becomes a source of imagery for film and television. Popular understandings of religious belief and practice are formed by encounters with their representations in journalism and entertainment media. Religious institutions produce their own media, too, from radio and TV preachers to religious videogames. This journal seeks to provide a venue for sharing new empirical research and theoretical analysis of these and other intersections between religion, media and culture.

RMDC publishes original work that contributes to social-scientific discussion of the relationship between religion, media and culture. Studies of any religious tradition, medium or geographical region are welcome. The journal’s primary focus is on recent and contemporary media, but historical studies may also be considered. Theological writings will not normally be accepted for publication.

ISMRC is a worldwide association for the academic study of religion and media. Its meetings began in 1994, and a biennial series of International Conferences on Media, Religion and Culture has been organized since 1996. These conferences have now been held in North and South America, Europe and Asia, and affiliated conferences have also been arranged in many countries. RMDC received the official endorsement of this society in 2017 and seeks to continue this global scholarly conversation.

RMDC publishes peer-reviewed articles (6-8000 words), non-reviewed research reports (up to 5000 words), book reviews (up to 1200 words) and review articles (2-3000 words, comparing two or more recent books on a common theme). Submissions should conform to the Instructions for Authors, available below as a downloadable PDF.

The Journal of Religious Minorities under Muslim Rule provides a primary venue for scholarly studies that examine religious minorities (such as Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and other minoritarian Muslim groups) under majoritarian Muslim rule. The journal covers a large temporal period, spanning from 7th century Arabia to 1922 (the end of Ottoman rule), in addition to a large geographic area from North Africa and al-Andalus in the West to Iran, some Central Asian lands, well into Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, and Indonesia in the East. The focus includes minority-minority, minority-majority, and minority-state relations. In addition to its broad temporal and geographic reach, this is an interdisciplinary journal which will appeal to those working in specific disciplines, including history, religious studies, literature, legal studies, and archaeology.
