Missiological journals: a checklist.

In 2004, at the Eleventh General Assembly of the International Association for Mission Studies (IAMS) in Port Dickson, Malaysia, editors of journals related to mission studies convened an informal meeting. In preparation for this meeting, a directory of thirty-nine journals was generated from a rudimentary survey circulated among IAMS members. Of that number, two were barely conceived; neither survived beyond a single issue. Several were a mere one or two issues old. Still others, such as the venerable International Review of Mission and the flourishing INTERNATIONAL BULLETIN OF MISSIONARY RESEARCH, represented decades of experience addressing the perennial challenges of accessibility and relevance in a rapidly changing global Christian community.

The roundtable conversation at the meeting was instructive. There was a dim but daunting realization that without a dynamic presence on the Internet, journals would wane and disappear. No one knew how a web-based journal could possibly generate the revenues required to cover editorial and production costs. Since advertisers have little interest in paying for a message that will be viewed by a very limited number of readers, and readers are either unwilling or unable to pay for online content, how could any mission studies journal survive economically? Circulation, a challenge for any serial publication, is integral to financial viability. Editorial, production, and mailing overheads are formidable, and subscriptions alone rarely cover these costs. With readers worldwide increasingly going to the web for information, scholarly journals, unless endowed or otherwise independently funded, fade and disappear.

At the conclusion of the meeting, it was suggested that the registry be more widely circulated. Accordingly, it was--and still is--linked to the IAMS website: http://missionstudies.org/index.php/journal/missiological-journals. The list that follows, an expansion that doubles the original effort, is admittedly spare to the point of minimalism in the information it contains. But it can perhaps serve as an initial outline of the field. The list would expand yet again if works were included that focus on the emerging discipline of world Christianity, such as the Journal of World Christianity (www.journalofworldchristianity.org), which overlaps with but holds itself to be distinct from mission studies.

Despite the most heroic editorial efforts, such a list is fated, not only to be inaccurate and in many ways deficient, but also to become instantly out of date. Recognizing this, the IBMR editors invite readers to supply what they know, filling in gaps and correcting errors, so that the list--which will be posted online--can become and remain a current and reliable guide to journals in the field of mission studies. Kindly address updates and emendations to the editors at ibmr@omsc.org.

In preparing this list, journal editors were asked to provide basic information, here abbreviated as follows: EDIT: editor/associate editor; PUBL: publisher; DSCPT: concise description; LANG: principal language; YEAR: year publication began; CIRC: number of subscribers; FREQ: frequency of publication; SUBS: subscription cost; ADDR: postal address; TELE: telephone number; FAX: fax number; EMAIL: e-mail address; WEB: website URL.

Some of the journals listed below are e-journals, circulated only online. Others circulate in a print version in addition to having an online presence. We can expect the number of those available in whole or in part through a website to continue to grow. Many of these journals are also accessible through the full-text databases maintained by EBSCO (www.ebsco.com), such as Humanities International Complete and Humanities Full Text, via the American Theological Library Association's ATLA Religion Database (www.atla.com), and through similar services to which libraries, universities, and educational consortia subscribe.

Subscription costs are often complex--whether for an individual or institution, a domestic or foreign subscription, online or in print, one year or multiple years, and a number of other variations. Therefore, the prices shown below are for one year for an individual residing within the country where the journal is published. For multiyear discounts, student rates, institutional prices, and variation in cost by region of the world, see the journals' websites or inquire by e-mail.

The task of updating this list fell to two of my capable interns, Erica Stalcup and Wendy Jennings. To them must go the credit for whatever is useful; for the list's deficiencies, however, the discredit must be mine. Dwight Baker, senior associate editor of the INTERNATIONAL BULLETIN OF MISSIONARY RESEARCH, also contributed to the list.

Mission, Memory, and Communion

In a forthcoming book from the Documentation, Archives and Bibliography (DABOH) working group of the International Association for Mission Studies, Roman Catholics and Protestants "explore together the theological foundation of documenting present-day Christianity." Mission, Memory, and Communion: Documenting World Christianity in the Twenty-First Century will be published in March 2013 by the Centre for the Study of Christianity in Asia, Trinity Theological College, Singapore. The coeditors are Michael Nai-Chiu Poon, the center director; Marek A. Rostkowski, O.M.I., director of the Pontifical University Urbaniana Library, Rome; and John Roxborogh, honorary fellow in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Otago, New Zealand.

Fifteen key interpreters of present-day Christianity from a wide spectrum of traditions, professional training, and experience across the globe examine the theoretical foundation of documenting Christianity at a time when fundamental questions are being raised regarding the observers, actors, sources, and classification of Christianity. For details, go to www.ttc.edu.sg/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=298.
