The Journal of Vaishnava Studies, also known as Journal of Vaiṣṇava Studies, is an academic journal that was founded in 1992 by Steven J. Rosen[1] (Satyaraja Dasa), a member of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. It is dedicated to scholarly research associated with Vishnu-related traditions. In 2002, the journal affiliated with Christopher Newport University, in Virginia, and with A. Deepak Publishing, Inc.

Its Spring 2012 edition has been described as "a fine volume of interfaith reflection that covers fifteen years of Vaishnava/Christian dialogue, most of which has taken place at an annual conference at Rockwood Manor in Potomac, Maryland".[2]

Francis Xavier Clooney has commented positively on the contribution the journal has made to Hindu scholarly publishing.[3]

Edwin Bryant and Maria Ekstrand describe the journal as a "truly nonpartisan enterprise that highlights contemporary research by major scholars not only of the Chaitanya tradition but also of Vaishnavism in general".[4]

Several journals are notable in their dedication to publishing in the area of Hinduism... The Journal of Vaishnava Studies, which, too, is over twenty years old, can also be mentioned here, as offering valuable thematic issues on topics of academic interest with historic and contemporary import, and essays written very often by authors of Hindu background.

The Journal of Vaishnava Studies, founded by Steven Rosen, a contributor to this volume, although not an ISKCON product as such, shows that a believer may sponsor and sustain a truly nonpartisan enterprise that highlights contemporary research by major scholars not only of the Chaitanya tradition but also of Vaishnavism in general.
