Dear Colleagues,


My apologies for cross-posting.


I am pleased to announce that the Journal of Religion in Japan (JRJ) 10.1 (2021) has been published and is now available. For more info please see: 


This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Journal of Religion in Japan, which is indexed, among others, by ATLA Religion Database, SCOPUS, ERIH PLUS, and Emerging Sources Citation Index (Web of Science). I hope you would consider JRJ as a possible venue for your publications.


In this regard, maybe you would also be interested to know that in 2021 Brill will publish in Open Access all research articles by authors affiliated to institutions in the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Sweden, and Austria. Some more info here:
