About Japanese Journal for the Psychology of Religion and SpiritualityReligion and spirituality are significant themes for humans and society. While some scientific efforts have been made in Japan to address the issues related to the psychology of religion and spirituality, most studies heretofore are buried and disregarded because of a lack of major outlets. We firmly believe that it is urgently imperative to create a venue to present and accumulate empirical findings.
The primary goal of the Japanese Journal for the Psychology of Religion and Spirituality is to stimulate the publication of empirical data on the psychology of religion/spirituality and encourage cross-disciplinary exchanges among researchers around the world. It is a peer-reviewed online journal published once a year with an open format that anyone can submit and subscribe to for free of charge (the inaugural issue will be available in 2023).
The journal primarily focuses on empirical studies but occasionally publishes scholarly reviews and theoretical articles. We also welcome both basic and applied research with rigorous methodologies on a wide range of related topics dealing with human psychology and behavior
We hope you will join us in this new endeavor.
