Secularism and Nonreligion is the world's first journal dedicated to the investigation of secularism and nonreligion in all forms. Articles are published on a continuous basis, ensuring publication as soon as submissions are accepted and formatted. Secularism and Nonreligion is an interdisciplinary, fully open access, peer-reviewed journal with the aim of advancing research on various aspects of 'the secular.'
The journal encourages submissions that explore all aspects of what it means to be secular. To submit a manuscript, please read our author guidelines.
Secularism and Nonreligion is pleased to welcome Dr. Melanie Elyse Brewster to the editorial team.
Melanie is an associate professor of psychology and education at Columbia University and a practicing psychologist. Her research focuses on stigma and marginalization and how these experiences may relate to mental health and well-being. Her book, Atheists in America (2014) was among the first texts to center the narratives of demographically diverse nonbelievers in the United States.
Melanie is replacing Jesse Smith, who is stepping down from editorial duties after nearly four years with the journal.
