Brill adds Journal of Youth and Theology to Journal Program

Leiden, The Netherlands  ()

Leiden (NL) / Boston (MA) / Singapore (SG)  - 4 June 2015

As of 2015, Brill is set to publish the Journal of Youth & Theology, the journal of the International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry (IASYM).

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, adds the renowned peer-reviewed journal Journal of Youth & Theology to its growing portfolio of journals on Theology and World Christianity. The Journal of Youth & Theology is an international, ecumenical, peer-reviewed journal that aims at furthering the academic study of youth and youth ministry. Research articles mainly have theology as a core discipline but are often interdisciplinary, combining the theological approach with sociological and psychological perspectives. The journal is of interest to scholars in religious studies, theology, religious education, sociology, pedagogy and psychology.

Mirjam Elbers, Brill's Acquisitions Editor for Theology: "The Journal of Youth & Theology was founded 14 years ago and has been published by the International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry, addressing the growing need for academic research in this field. We are excited that this journal now comes to us, further strengthening our unique and growing collection of journals on Theology and World Christianity."

Dr. Jos de Kock, editor of the Journal of Youth & Theology, says: "We are proud that the journal will be published by Brill, a publishing house with such a rich history and a strong international focus. Since its inception in 2002, Journal of Youth & Theology aims at furthering the research on youth and youth ministry on an academic level."

Dr. Bard Norheim, president of the International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry: "We are delighted with the cooperation with Brill. It will help strengthen our position in the field and our international focus. We look forward to further serving international scholarship in this particular field."
