The Journal of Korean Religions (JKR) would like to announce the October 2014 publication of Volume 5, Number 2 "Religion, Ritual, and the State in Chosŏn Korea."

Through the singular lens of “religion,” the articles in our current volume well express the many divergent topics that fall within the purview of the relationship between the state and the sacred in the Chosŏn era. Guest Editor Don Baker introduces the issue and begins with a unique perspective comparing the coterminous treatment of female religionists in Seoul and Salem, offering a corrective to simple generalizations about modernity, religion, and the “East.” Two articles address the political problems that religious devotion played in Chosŏn foreign policy, in one case because of too much loyalty to Ming and in another, not enough. Two more articles investigate the Confucianization of space itself, whether in symbolically “taking the mountains back” from the Buddhists or stripping the family rituals at the royal birthplace of their unorthodox practices.

We also very gladly announce the selection of JKR for full coverage by Thomson Reuters in the Arts & Humanities Citation Index, as well as Current Contents/Arts and Humanities. Featured now on databases such as Project MUSE, JSTOR, A&HCI, SCOPUS, and ATLAS, in five quick years, JKR has established itself in key global indices of humanities research.
