Cultic Studies Journal
Cultic Studies Journal: Psychological Manipulation and Society (ISSN-0748-6499) is a refereed, semi-annual journal published by AFF.
 
The Cultic Studies Journal: Psychological Manipulation and Society (CSJ) 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.
The term "cultic processes" refers to manipulative forms of social influence that manifest most conspicuously, though not exclusively, in cultic groups, which may be religious, psychotherapeutic, political, or commercial in content. The cultic processes of concern to the CSJ are directly related to the research traditions of thought reform and the psychology of social influence.
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 for the Scientific Study of Religion (JSSR) began in 1961 and is now published quarterly under the auspices of the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion.

ICSA does NOT maintain a list of "bad" groups or "cults."  We nonjudgmentally list groups on which we have information.

Groups listed, described, or referred to on ICSA's Web sites may be mainstream or nonmainstream, controversial or noncontroversial, religious or nonreligious, cult or not cult, harmful or benign.

We encourage inquirers to consider a variety of opinions, negative and positive, so that inquirers can make independent and informed judgments pertinent to their particular concerns.

Views expressed on our Web sites are those of the document's author(s) and are not necessarily shared, endorsed, or recommended by ICSA or any of its directors, staff, or advisors.
