Interreligious Studies and Intercultural Theology (ISIT) is a peer-reviewed journal providing a forum for scholars to share ideas and research on a wide range of topics to do with interreligious questions and issues impacting contemporary pluralist society, and to foster a deeper understanding of theoretical and practical matters concerning interreligious relations. The journal aims at stimulating and promoting the various relevant conversations taking place in different parts of the world.

ISIT is committed to an interdisciplinary approach that includes, but is not limited to, interreligious studies, religious studies, (cultural) anthropology, theology, intercultural and comparative theology, Islamic studies, Buddhist studies, Hindu studies, secularism studies, and the engagement between secularism and religions; philosophy, Jewish studies, sociology, political science, gender studies, and various specific dialogue or interreligious encounter fields.  It is also concerned with the encounter between religious traditions and worldviews.

ISIT welcomes all contributions that promote a deep and critical understanding of the systematic and practical issues concerning interreligious relations. It allows discussion of the various questions that arise in the modern situation of a pluralist culture and provides a forum for academic discussion and comparative study of religious beliefs and philosophies of life, of the different moralities involved, and the possibilities of agreement as well as the causes of disagreement. The journal publishes articles by adherents of various religious traditions.

ISIT is published in print and online, with an initial print frequency of 2 issues per volume. The online edition contains supplemental content not appearing in the print version, including interviews, book excerpts, blogs, and profiles of key thinkers in the field.

ISIT is associated closely with the (European) Society for Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies. This society, with an international membership, organizes conferences biennially, and members will automatically become subscribers to this journal. Readers who are interested in joining the Society may email the managing editor at the following address:
