Journal for the Cognitive Science of Religion is the official journal of the International Association for the Cognitive and Evolutionary Sciences of Religion (IACESR). The Association was founded in 2006 and since then has sponsored a number of international collaborative projects and biennial conferences. Members of the IACESR receive heavily discounted access to the Journal for the Cognitive Science of Religion.
The cognitive science of religion is a burgeoning field that finds itself in the center of cross-disciplinary research. Cognition is understood in a variety of ways from bottom-up to top-down models and theories. New insights into cognition, culture and religion are being discovered, new ways of doing research are being established and new methodologies and technologies are being used in the cognitive science of religion. The number of scholars and scientists working in this exciting field are expanding exponentially, and the journal provides a cutting-edge publication channel for this field.
