Christian Research Journal Published by the Christian Research Institute. "CRI's areas of research specialization include (1) non-Christian religions, sects, and cults; (2) the world of the occult (including practices, phenomena, and movements); and (3) issues of contemporary theological and apologetic concern (e.g. aberrant Christian teachings and practices, philosophical and historical speculations which challenge Biblical reliability, and sensational conspiracy theories). The JOURNAL strives to take a scholarly approach to all these themes, yet in a popular, readable format, offering analysis that are both rational and biblical."
Cultic Studies Journal One of the foremost research publications. Published by AFF. "The journal seeks to advance the understanding of cultic processes and their relation to society, including broad social and cultural implications as well as effects on individuals and families. CSJ assumes that a multidisciplinary perspective is necessary for the proper understanding of this subject and, consequently, publishes articles from different disciplines and points of view. The journal's main concern is understanding the nature, effects, and implications of psychological manipulation. Abstracts available online."
