The Yearbook for Ritual and Liturgical Studies annually offers a forum for innovative, national and international research in the field of ritual and liturgical studies. As with the book series Liturgia Condenda, the rationale of this journal is that liturgy and ritual are complex, multidimensional research objects that are to be investigated both contextually (in past and present) and from a variety of (sub)disciplinary perspectives. This rationale gives this journal a distinct multidisciplinary, societal and cultural oriented profile.
Since 1996 the Yearbook is co-published by IRiLiS and the Institute for Christian Cultural Heritage at Groningen University. In 2009, the English subtitle of this multilingual series was added to its official Dutch title Jaarboek voor Liturgieonderzoek. As of 2017, the Yearbook no longer appears in print, but online via University of Groningen Press (Open Access).
The Yearbook for Ritual and Liturgical Studies is ranked as a B-journal according to the most recent Dutch DGO-list.
