Journal for the Study of Spirituality: An interdisciplinary and inter-professional forum

The Journal for the Study of Spirituality provides an international peer-reviewed forum for the dissemination and exploration of research, knowledge, wisdom and insight associated with spirituality and contemporary spirituality studies. It is concerned with what spirituality means; how it is expressed in both theory and practice; and implications for social/organizational policies and personal/professional development. The journal recognises that spirituality and spiritual values can be expressed and studied in secular contexts, including scientific and professional settings, as well as within faith and wisdom traditions.
