Journal of Book of Mormon Studies

The leading venue for scholarly work on the Book of Mormon

Established in 1992 by founding editor Stephen D. Ricks, the Journal of Book of Mormon Studies is the leading venue for scholarly work on the Book of Mormon. The journal publishes research articles, research notes, book reviews, review essays, literature reviews, and interviews focused on the Book of Mormon. The journal serves a general readership, including scholars interested in the Book of Mormon as an object of research and lay readers hoping to learn more about their sacred text. It thus aims at producing top-rate scholarship working at the highest academic level, even as it asks contributors to recognize the ethical complexity of dealing with a text held sacred by believers. Peer reviewers are drawn from a wide range of relevant disciplines and a variety of academic institutions.

The journal is available both electronically and in print and is published annually by the University of Illinois Press on behalf of the Neal A. Maxwell Institute in Provo, Utah.
