Cultic Studies Review (CSR)
is a triannual Internet journal of news, research, and opinion published by
AFF (American Family Foundation).
Although designed as an Internet journal, CSR is
also available in an optional print version.
CSR is the successor to Cults and Society, and
AFF's print periodicals: Cultic Studies Journal and The Cult
Observer, both published from 1984 to 2001.
The former was a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal; the
latter summarized and excerpted press reports about cults and other groups
that arouse concern.
Like its predecessor periodicals, CSR maintains a distinguished
editorial advisory board.
