Cultic Studies Journal



Psychological Manipulation and Society

Founded in 1984, the Cultic Studies Journal (CSJ) is a semi-annual, peer reviewed, multidisciplinary journal that 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.

Abstracted in Psychological Abstracts and Religion Index, it is the only scholarly journal devoted to this field of inquiry. The cultic processes of concern to the CSJ are directly related to the research traditions of thought reform and the psychology of social influence. The CSJ editorial board  is composed of academicians from major universities and nationally recognized experts in the field.
