Journal History

In 1984, the Mededelingen (Announcements) of the Liturgical Institute of the University of Groningen were continued in the form of a yearbook entitled Jaarboek voor Liturgie-onderzoek (ISSNĀ 0924-042X, Yearbook for Liturgical Research), which was published together with the Liturgical Institute (later Institute for Ritual and Liturgical Studies, IRiLiS) of the the University of Tilburg. From 2014 this institute has been located at the Protestant Theological University (PThU) in Amsterdam. Over the years, the yearbook has established itself as the publication organ for Dutch researchers from the full range of liturgical science and ritual studies.
Since 1996, the yearbook has been published jointly by IRiLiS and the Institute for Christian Cultural Heritage, later Centre of Religion and Heritage (CRH) at the University of Groningen. In 2009, the English subtitle of this multilingual series was added to the official Dutch title Jaarboek voor Liturgieonderzoek. From 2017 the yearbook will no longer appear in printed form, but online via University of Groningen Press (Open Access) with a new title: Yearbook for Ritual and Liturgical Studies.
