In response to this trend Brill Research Perspectives in Jesuit Studies publishes four peer reviewed fascicles per year on various thematic and geographical/chronological subjects. RPJS complements other Brill publications in the field, such as the Journal of Jesuit Studies, the Jesuit Studies book series, and the Jesuit Historiography Online. Brill Research Perspectives in Jesuit Studies is published in Open Access thanks to generous support from the following institutions:

The International Journal of Asian Christianity is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the scholarly examination of Christianity in Asia and of Asian Christian diaspora in the West and elsewhere. While other major Asian religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam have received great deal of international scholarly attention, Christianity is relatively neglected as a subject of study. This journal intends to rectify this neglect by providing a multidisciplinary forum for the examination of Asian Christianity from sociological, anthropological, comparative religion, religious studies, theological, historical and similar perspectives and link such studies to emerging trends in the social sciences such as migration studies, identities, minorities, secularization, fundamentalism, development, and the political roles of religion.
In the diverse and plural contexts of Asian societies and cultures, Christianity has embedded itself in complex ways giving rise to historically particular Christian communities with their own locally and regionally prolific variants of myth, tradition and culture as well as specific engagements with altering economic and political realities. This unique journal creates a space previously unavailable to examine these dense and sophisticated linkages of religion and culture both in their rich distinctiveness as well as in a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary perspective allowing for broader generalizations and theorizations to emerge.
The journal is open to scholars of all religious persuasions or none undertaking serious work on the historical, anthropological, educational, theological, cultural social and political aspects of Asian Christianity and its role in shaping both the past and present Asian societies.

The Journal of Jesuit Studies (JJS) is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal dedicated to the study of Jesuit history from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century. It welcomes articles on all aspects of the Jesuit past and present including, but not limited to, the Jesuit role in the arts and sciences, theology, philosophy, mission, literature, and interreligious/inter-cultural encounters.

In its themed issues the JJS highlights studies with a given topical, chronological or geographical focus. In addition there are two open-topic issues per year. The journal publishes a significant number of book reviews as well. One of the key tasks of the JJS is to relate episodes in Jesuit history, particularly those which have suffered from scholarly neglect, to broader trends in global history over the past five centuries. The journal also aims to bring the highest quality non-Anglophone scholarship to an English-speaking audience by means of translated original articles.

The Journal of Jesuit Studies is published in Open Access thanks to generous support from the following institutions:

- Fairfield University
- The Francis & Ann Curran Center for American Catholic Studies at Fordham University
- Loyola University Chicago
- Universidad Iberoamericana
- Universidad Loyola Andalucía

Editor-in-Chief: Yannick Fer
The peer-reviewed journal Social Sciences and Missions provides a dedicated forum for the exploration of “mission” from a social scientific perspective. It thus welcomes contributions in the fields of history, anthropology, sociology, political science or social geography. While the journal originally focused on Christianity, it now has a broader appreciation of “mission” as a concept. Specifically, for the journal “mission” is not a theological category, but rather a type of social action and a modality of religious intervention in social space. In this sense, it is not restricted to Christian actors, and includes religious activities that outline a particular purpose at some kind of social, political, cultural, and economic transformation that may not be neatly defined as "conversion" of others. Therefore, the journal does not aim at studying missions for themselves, but rather as a social fact, which throws light on the relations between religion and society at both local and global scales.

Such a definition of mission recognizes the global transformation of the religious field and allows for the exploration of valuable themes: historical and contemporary North-South relationships as well as international circulations of religious actors; the increasing role of the Global South in missionary activities; the regulation of religious expressions in public space and the role of religion in the shaping of citizenship and political life; religious and cultural pluralism, conflict, and mediation; the influential role of religion in humanitarian action, social welfare and development work; the innovative entry of religion in other social spheres such as sports or popular culture; its relations to sexuality, race and gender; and the evolution of religious organizations with respect to missionary work. The journal seeks to publish work that highlights the ongoing but changing significance of mission and the many intersections between religious purposes and social dynamics. Social Sciences & Missions accepts articles in English and in French. It also welcomes proposals for pioneering special issues.
