Religious Studies Review
Religious Studies Review (RSR), edited by David B. Gray and
Jeremy Biles, is a well-known and widely circulating quarterly review of
new publications across the entire field of religious studies and in
related disciplines. Elias Bongmba of the Department of Religion at Rice is the Managing Editor. RSR's team of reviewers examine over 1,000 titles
annually, both through its review essays (several of which are
published in each issue) and its substantial critical book notes section
(arranged in terms of the various sub-specialties in the field). RSR
also publishes bibliographies and an ongoing registry of dissertations
completed or in progress.
Until 2005, RSR was wholely produced and distributed by the Council;
however, the Council contracted Wiley-Blackwell to produce and
distribute the journal. In 2009, Rice University purchased RSR, which
will continue to be published by Wiley-Blackwell.
