The International Journal for Religious Freedom (IJRF) is the journal of the International Institute for Religious Freedom (IIRF). It is published bi-annually and aims to provide a platform for scholarly discourse on the issue of religious freedom in general and the persecution of Christians in particular. It is an interdisciplinary, international, peer reviewed, scholarly journal, serving the practical interests of religious freedom and contains research articles, documentation, book reviews and academic news on the issue. The editors welcome the submission of any item that could contribute to the journal. Manuscripts submitted for publication are assessed by a panel of referees and the decision to publish is dependent on these referees' reports.
Given that Africa is noted for its abundance of religious activities, the journal publishes research that allow scholars to question the infringement on religious freedoms that go unreported in Africa. The fact that the journal assesses religious freedom from a global perspective, allow for comparison of developments that have occurred elsewhere. The journal can only be accessed through paid subscription.
