Atla also added three Atlas PLUS titles from Brill in the Netherlands:
- Journal of Religion in Europe is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for multi-disciplinary research into the complex dynamics of religious discourses and practices in Europe, both historical and contemporary. The journal’s underlying idea is that religion in Europe is characterized by a variety of pluralisms, including a pluralism of religious communities that actively engage with one another, pluralism of societal systems, and pluralism of scholarly discourses, including religious studies, legal studies, history, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, and psychology.
- The Yearbook of International Religious Demography, a peer-reviewed ceased title, presented an annual snapshot of the state of religious statistics around the world. Each issue offered findings, sources, methods, and implications surrounding international religious demography.
- The Interdisciplinary Journal for Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society (JRAT) is an interdisciplinary, international, online open-access peer-reviewed journal that aims at investigating the contribution of religion to the cultural, political, juridical, and aesthetic dynamics in present-day pluralistic societies. The journal creates an interdisciplinary research space both for theologians of different religious and confessional traditions (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Islamic, etc.), as well as for researchers in the field of Religious Studies, Sociology of Religion, Social Sciences, Law, Jewish Studies, Islamic Studies, Indology, Tibetan and Buddhist Studies, Philosophy and Pedagogy.
