LA, CA (October 15, 2012)SAGE and The American Society of Missiology today announced an agreement to publish the Society’s journal, Missiology, from January 2013.

Distinctly multi-disciplinary in its focus, it is one of the premier scholarly journals of mission studies, covering history, theology, anthropology, communication theory, religious encounter, ecumenics and methodology. Published four times a year and edited by Richard Starcher, Biola University, the journal aims to provide theoretical reflections and applied mission science on pertinent research areas.

“We are delighted to have been selected by the American Society of Missiology to publish their prestigious journal,” said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE. “As a leading publisher in theology and biblical studies, we see Missiology as a major addition to our portfolio. We look forward to working with the Society and the Editor to maximize the journal’s circulation and further enhance its position as one of the world’s premier scholarly resources in mission studies.”

Missiology is excited about the benefits that our new relationship with SAGE will bring,” commented Richard Starcher, Editor. “It was important for us when choosing a new publisher to ensure that there was an alignment of values and mission. Through SAGE’s commitment to publishing high quality, distinctive research, we felt that they understood our vision for our journal. In addition, we look forward to benefitting from SAGE’s prominent global presence, which will enable us to extend the accessibility of our research to a still larger audience. We are excited about developing this partnership with SAGE and look forward to developing it into a prosperous future.”
