Journal of Southern Religion

Critical Acclaim for the Journal of Southern Religion

"This new journal is evidence that more and more scholars are beginning to see the potential of electronic journals and are moving toward accepting them as full partners, together with print journals, in the academic enterprise. Billed as 'the first journal devoted entirely to the study of religion in the American South,' JSR demonstrates that online publications need not tread the same ground already covered by existing print journals; many hitherto unexplored avenues of investigation are available to the electronic journal. With an outstanding editorial board and a professional look, the journal promises to make contributions to the study of American religion, as well as to raise the standard that new electronic journals will have to meet.
--American Academy of Religion, Religious Studies News

"I found the first issue of JSR to be fabulous (I was especially glad to see the most scholarly discussion of Southern Cross that I have been able to find so far). I am on the Library and Copyright Board at Stanford, and we were discussing the changing nature of academic publishing and issues surrounding tenure, subscriptions and academic credibility. Your journal was mentioned as among those that prove that web-based publishing is the way of the future."
--Mark Bell, Stanford University

"This will be a wonderful service and forum for scholars--and others--interested in the South and religion therein. I look forward to future issues."
--Rick Nutt, Muskingum College
