State, Religion and Church

Welcome to the website of State, Religion and Church, an open-access electronic journal of religious studies published twice yearly in English by the Institute of Public Administration and Management at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration in Moscow. Our mission is to bring Russian contributions to religious studies into conversation with global developments in the field. To this end, we publish both original material and translations of articles and book reviews that originally appeared in our parent journal, Gosudarstvo, religiia, tserkov' v Rossii i za rubezhom

We welcome the submission of original manuscripts covering the broad thematic range of religious studies (our interests are by no means limited to Russia) and from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. If selected for further consideration after an initial screening, a manuscript will go through double-blind peer review, after which the editors will decide whether to pursue it further. Prospective authors should adhere to our Style Guide. Inquiries and submissions may be sent to

Publication in the journal is free from any charges.
