Call for Reviews 2/2019

Read about a really sophisticated idea recently? But not so impressed with these other titles? Itching to comment on both? Great! ZjR provides you with a forum to introduce your critical thoughts on recent publications to a wider public. We are interested in any material relevant to the academic study of religion — be it books, article collections, films and movies, or software.

Only one condition applies: ZjR isn't an advertisement space for poor students reproducing publishers' catalogue blurbs. We want legitimate praise or criticism — based on your analysis and in accordance with ZjR's general guidelines for publishing articles. Here we offer you two formats for writing: (1) You can write an old-school review or (2) an in-depth review essay. Does that wet your appetite?

OK, so what's next? Generally, there are two options:

Here you find a list of books that are currently waiting to be reviewed by you in our journal. Found something? Hungry for reviewing? Contact us and we will organise a free review-copy for you to submit a review with ZjR.

If none of the listed titles appealed to you or you already know of a particular book/ movie/ software etc., you want to comment on, you should contact us immediately. If we find your selection interesting and relevant for the academic study of religion, we will endeavour to help you receive a review copy from the publishers. We are specially looking for reviews of introductory books on religious studies / science of religion.

Here you find further information and guidelines for writing a review for ZjR.
