The Oxford Journal of Law and Religion will be officially launched in an event in Oxford on 19 April 2010.The new journal "is introduced to the Oxford Journals collection in response to the recent proliferation of research and writing on the interaction of law and religion cutting across many disciplines." Online access to the first issue is available here.
According to the Oxford University Press: "The journal aims to redefine the interdependence of law, humanities, and social sciences within the widening parameters of the study of law and religion, whilst seeking to make the distinctive area of law and religion more comprehensible from both a legal and a religious viewpoint. It will capture the complex dynamics of law and religion from different legal as well as religious research perspectives worldwide. ... The quality of the editorial team behind the OJLR, comprising top names from the UK, Europe, and the US, stands the journal in great stead to become the pre-eminent title in the field."
