What makes JAPAS distinctive?

  • JAPAS is the original Amish and Plain Anabaptist journal. The innovative spirit that brought this publication to life is still evidenced in the precedent-setting imaginativeness of every issue.

  • JAPAS loves new ideas. Our board members include scholars and service providers, plain people, women and men of all ages, contributors from both sides of the Atlantic, and numerous institutions. They support JAPAS because they share a commitment to advancing understanding through diverse perspectives.

  • The JAPAS 25-member book review panel consists entirely of plain people. This is just one of many ways the “written about” will “write back” in JAPAS.
