ASM Monographs

ASM MonographsThe American Society of Missiology publishes a series for distinguished dissertations and other similar scholarly monographs in missiology and in related fields of missiological interest. In its initial years the series was co-published with the University Press of America, and from 2006 onward it is being co-published with Pickwick Publications, an imprint of Wipf & Stock Publishers.


The ASM Scholarly Monograph Series makes more widely available quality scholarly work relating to the area of world mission. The Series welcomes submissions of doctoral dissertations completed in the last three years at universities and theological institutions in North America and around the world. Other similar scholarly monographs are also welcome. The manuscripts must be in English and not exceeding 350-400 pages.


Authors wishing their dissertations or monographs to be considered for the Series must first submit an abstract, table of contents, and a letter explaining the relevance and importance of the study to the ASM Scholarly Monograph Series Editorial Committee Chair, James R. Krabill. If the topic is deemed of interest and appropriate, the Chair will request a full electronic copy of the dissertation. Members of the Series Committee, who may request assistance from expert readers on specialized topics, judge the dissertations.
