We are now one month into the methods blog series – a collaboration between the Scientific Study of Nonreligious Belief (SSNB) project* and the Nonreligion and Secularity Research Network (NSRN). Over the next two months, we are looking forward to contributions from leading researchers working across the social sciences, including Abby Day, Ryan Cragun, Ann Taves, Phil Zuckerman and many more besides. Meanwhile, here’s a reminder of the blogs published in May:
- Research Methods for the Scientific Study of Nonreligion by Lois Lee, Stephen Bullivant, Miguel Farias and Jonathan Lanman
- Measuring Implicit Religious and Nonreligious Belief by Elisa Järnefelt
- Angels and the Digital Afterlife: Studying Nonreligion Online by Tim Hutchings

- Not for Girls? Gender and Researching Nonreligion by Marta Trzebiatowska
* The Scientific Study of Nonreligious Belief (SSNB) project focuses on the beliefs and meaning systems of nonreligious people. These ‘nonreligious beliefs’ include the religious, religious-like, and religion-related ideas and convictions of nonaffiliates and atheists, and a wide array of specific beliefs, such as those about God(s) and supernatural agents, the nature and meaning of life, and the moral status of religious traditions. The full project website is under construction; its launch will be announced on the NSRN website. The SSNB project is funded by the John Templeton Foundation, in collaboration with UCL, St Mary’s University Twickenham, Queen’s University Belfast, Coventry University and the Nonreligion and Secularity Research Network (NSRN).
