For nearly two decades, Politics, Religion & Ideology has provided the leading international forum for the scholarly exploration of the politics of illiberal ideologies, both religious and secular. The journal is multi-disciplinary, cutting-edge and truly international in scope, having to date received submissions from authors located in over 30 different countries. The journal publishes critical analyses of theory and international case studies pertaining to: • The historic and ongoing interaction between religion and politics. • The impact of religious radicalism on public policy, political attitudes and decision-making. • The contemporary politics of religious revival in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, and Asia. • The historical and contemporary politics of secular 'totalising' movements, such as fascism, Nazism, Stalinism, Maoism, and Ba'athism. • Conflicts between illiberal ideologies (both religious and secular) and their opponents. • Constructions of the sacred and the secular in political religions and other political ideologies. • Publicly enforced (ir)religion and dissent. • Class, gender and race in the context of political religions and religious politics. • Memory, memory culture and the politics of memory in the context of totalitarianism and radical ideologies.

The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
