From the Christian Research Journal guidelines:

The CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL, which is published four times per year, is a publication of the Christian Research Institute (CRI). The JOURNAL specializes in in-depth research of new religious movements, aberrant Christian movements and teachings, and issues affecting Christian apologetics, both evidences for faith and objections to it, emerging from sources as diverse as biblical and historical studies, science, philosophy, and popular culture.

The specific areas and scholarly nature of our focus make it highly unlikely that we would accept for publication poems, fiction, personal testimonies (except when they have exceptional apologetic applications), articles on Scripture passages unrelated to our focus areas, or general articles on Christian living and relationships.

Unsolicited manuscripts and article queries are welcome (but are rarely published). We prefer that all unsolicited manuscripts be submitted via e-mail to

Almost nothing can better prepare you to write for the CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL than familiarity with the JOURNAL itself. If you are not a regular reader of the JOURNAL, you should read all the articles in recent issues that correspond to the type of article you wish to write (e.g., feature articles, Postmodern Realities, Practical Hermeneutics, Effective Evangelism, Viewpoint, and book reviews (either 1700-word Summary Critiques or shorter reviews, depending on which kind you would be writing). The
editors will furnish samples of such articles to JOURNAL contributors on request. In reading these articles, please note especially the vocabulary/tone, level of scholarship, and mechanics that they employ.
