About the Journal
The Journal of Plain Anabaptist Communities (JPAC) is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing both empirical and theoretical work related to plain Anabaptist communities, including, among others, the Amish, conservative Mennonites, Amish-Mennonites, Apostolic Christians, Brethren, Bruderhof, and Hutterites. JPAC articles may include emerging issues associated with plain Anabaptist communities, diverse theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches to the study of plain Anabaptist groups, and significant research findings about plain Anabaptist populations.
JPAC aims to facilitate the advancement of scholarship and research on plain Anabaptist communities in North America and around the world, and to strengthen the networks of scholars from all disciplines who examine faith groups that emerged from the Anabaptist movement of the 16th century and who today maintain distinctive sectarian lifestyles and religious practices. JPAC enjoys the support and collaboration of the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies, Elizabethtown College, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania (https://www.etown.edu/centers/young-center/), Behalt, the Amish & Mennonite Information Center Berlin, Ohio (https://behalt.com), and the Amish America website (https://amishamerica.com).
