Studies in Judaism, Humanities and the Social Sciences is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed academic journal published by Academic Studies Press. The mission of the journal is to publish original works of interest on Judaism through the “eyes” of the humanities and the social sciences.  Its goal is to advance the systematic, scholarly, and social scientific study of Jews and Judaism, and to provide a forum for the discussion of methodologies, theories, and conceptual approaches across the many disciplines.  Articles may be contemporary or historical in nature and can include case studies, historical studies, articles on new theoretical developments, results of research that advance our understanding of Jews and Judaism, and works on innovations in methodology.  Studies in Judaism, Humanities and the Social Sciences encourages contributions from the global community of scholars.  All articles in this journal will undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and refereeing by anonymous reviewers.  The journal will also publish book reviews of important new scholarship.
