About the journal


The Journal of Economics, Theology and Religion (JETR) is an online and open access academic journal (ISSN 2772-9001).

It aims to be an independent, international, and interreligious platform for interdisciplinary debate.

It seeks to bring together economists, theologians and scholars in religious studies, by publishing peer-reviewed original research. Our hope is to find intersections, create dialogues, and offer new interdisciplinary insights and perspectives.

Launched in 2020, the journal is published bi-annually by the Erasmus Economics and Theology Institute (EETI) of Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
