Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) prior to and during the submission process, as it can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work (See The Effect of Open Access).Peer Review

Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science allows the following licences for submission:
This journal is published by the Open Library of Humanities (OLH). Unlike many open-access publishers, the OLH does not charge any author fees. This does not mean that we do not have costs. Instead, our costs are paid by an international library consortium. If your institution is not currently supporting the platform, we request that you ask your librarian to sign up. The OLH is extremely cost effective and is a not-for-profit charity. However, while we cannot function without financial support and we encourage universities to sign up, institutional commitment is not required to publish with us.Publication Schedule
The journal is published online, with articles being collated (and repaginated) into four issues per volume (year). Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publicly available.
Thematic Sections of articles are welcomed and will be published as part of a normal issue, but also within a separate section page. Please see the Journal Policies page for further information on Thematic Sections.Sections
