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
"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
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
