The journal Secularism and Nonreligion is produced in partnership with the NSRN. This 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 individuals 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.

Secularism and Nonreligion was founded in 2012 as a collaboration between the Non-religion and Secularity Research Network (NSRN) and the Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society and Culture (ISSSC), under the leadership of Barry Kosmin, Lois Lee and Ryan Cragun. In 2018, with Barry’s retirement and the closure of the ISSSC, Secularism and Nonreligion became the journal of the NSRN, with new co-editors Jesse Smith, Chris Cotter and Serawit Debele. Full details for how to submit and author guidelines are available at the journal’s dedicated website,
