The JRC is pleased to announce that the 2017 Volume Religion, Ideology and Violence is now available online. You can access the online publication as individual PDFs at: JRC Vol 27.
Print copies will be available to the entire volume (tentatively numbers 1, 2 and 3) in September 2017.
In anticipation of the release of Edition 27, No.1 of the JRC, we have released PDFs of our previous edition (Sexed Religion). They are now available for download under our Publications tab on the menu sidebar.
Previous editions (22, 23, 24) which were incorrectly being displayed should now be more easily accessible as well.
We are in the final stages of copy editing and source checking all our accepted submissions for volume no 1 of this edition. We will be opening shortly for submissions to be considered for volume no 2.
Note: we are extending a special invitation for our call for papers to participants at the upcoming Annual Graduate Interdisciplinary Conference at Concordia University in January 2017. If you would like to have your paper considered, please be sure to submit it once we are open again.
Just a reminder that the JRC is no longer reading any new submissions for the first volume of our 27th edition. We will only begin considering submissions for No 2 of the edition in December 2016.
As for a status update, all authors who submitted to us for our CFP should have or will be receiving confirmation and a final status update in the following days. We have reviewed our submissions and – as is always the case – selected a number to proceed ahead for review. We aim to have our peer review completed by the beginning of November 2016.
If you receive a rejection notice regarding your submission, remember to not take it to heart and to keep submitting to other publications. Just because something is not right for the JRC does not mean it cannot have a home elsewhere.
All the best!
The JRC is hosting a meet and greet at Cafe Kafein (1429 Rue Bishop, Montréal, QC H3G 2E4) in Montreal, Friday September 2nd from 5 -10 PM. All contributors, readers and graduate students associated with the JRC and its projects are cordially invited to attend.
Light catered snacks will be served and a (limited) amount of drink tickets will be available throughout the evening – on us!
See you there!
