The Zeitschrift für junge Religionswissenschaft is an international academic double-blind peer reviewed online-journal in the field of the academic Study of Religions. The main aim of the journal is to provide a platform for today’s and tomorrow’s scholars of the discipline of the study of religion as well as challenging, maybe unorthodox, and thought-provoking, new (and therefore: young) theories, methods, perspectives or ideas on a well established area of research, namely religion(s). Since 2006, thereby, the ZjR can be considered as network and platform for the very future of the discipline, as it is its young researchers, ideas, theories and methods. 
The ZjR’s full backlist will be gradually published on this site.​ ​Meanwhile, all issues, articles and reviews until 2011 remain available on the former website.
