Established by Jeffrey R. Holland, then dean of Religious Education at Brigham Young University, the Religious Studies Center has a forty-year tradition of excellence in publishing high-quality, double-blind-peer-reviewed academic books written by experienced and talented authors. Authors are involved at each stage to ensure quality and satisfaction. In short, that is the RSC recipe for success!

Here’s a sample of eight award-winning RSC books over a ten-year period. Most are copublished and distributed with our partner, Deseret Book Company:

Authors outside the BYU Religious Education faculty may also submit manuscripts. In fact, three of the award winners above are not part of the faculty. Authors who want to publish with the RSC can discuss their proposals or manuscripts with publications director Thomas Wayment, a professor of ancient scripture at Brigham Young University.

Manuscripts should be emailed to publication coordinator Joany Pinegar at Joany_pinegar@byu.edu. The manuscript will be peer reviewed in a double-blind process, and suggestions will be sent to the author.

After acceptance, the manuscript will be read and corrected by executive editor Devan Jensen and a talented team of editors, then designed by production supervisor Brent R. Nordgren and an equally talented team of designers.

Authors, try the RSC recipe for success! We think you will like it!
