Oxford University Press and the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion, based in the Faculty of Theology and Religion at Oxford University, are pleased to announce a new series of original academic works with a specific focus on the increasingly important field of science and religion. The Ian Ramsey Centre Studies in Science and Religion will initially take the form of a series of between six and nine works to be commissioned over the next six years. The series will be edited by Alister McGrath, Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University, and Director of the Ian Ramsey Centre. Dr Andrew Pinsent, the Centre’s Director of Research, serves as Managing Editor for the series, which is intended to encourage and extend original research in the field of science and religion, and disseminate its ideas and findings. The attached document sets out the scope and vision for this series. You are welcome to circulate this message and document to any colleagues who you believe might be interested in this possibility.
The editor warmly invites expressions of interest from potential contributors to this series.

The first stage in this process is an informal discussion of your proposed project with Professor McGrath. While we will welcome inquiries and submissions from all established scholars, we especially wish to encourage applications from under-represented constituencies within the science and religion community, including women and scholars working outside Europe and North America.
