Brand New Academic Journal

Trinity College and the Non-religion and Secularity Research Network have collaborated to create the new journal called Secularism and Nonreligion.  They are now seeking article submissions; here's what they are looking for:

Secularism and Nonreligion is an interdisciplinary journal published with the aim of advancing research on various aspects of 'the secular.' The journal is interested in contributions from primarily social scientific disciplines, including: psychology, sociology, political science, women's studies, economics, geography, demography, anthropology, public health, and religious studies. Contributions from history, neuroscience, computer science, biology, philosophy, and medicine will also be considered. Articles published in the journal focus on the secular at one of three levels: the micro or individual level, the meso or institutional level, or the macro or national and international levels. Articles explore all aspects of what it means to be secular at any of the above levels, what the lives of nonreligious indivduals are like, and the interactions between secularity and other aspects of the world. Articles also explore the ideology and philosophy of the secular or secularism.

They are hoping to begin publishing in January.  If anything else, it should prove interesting.
