Call for Papers for a Special Issue of IOSS Journal “Abstract of Sikh Studies” on the Theme of “Science and Religion” in Sikhism’ Context.
The Institute of Sikh Studies, encouraged by the positive response from some of the leading Diasporian and local Sikh Scientists, invites Papers from leading academics and practitioners in the scientific, technological, religious and, theological fields on the theme of “Science and Religion.” in Sikhism's Context for publication in their quarterly journal “Abstract of Sikh Studies” posted on its website www.sikhinstitute.org and also published in hard copies. The Institute’s objective is to promote discussion between scientific understanding and religious thought. It recognizes that some of the issues at the interface of Religion and Science may be complex but is keen to transcend the simplistic narratives of conflict or harmony and to play its role in setting new standards for sophisticated historical studies of science and religion to meet the demands and needs of younger generation having scientific bent of mind.

i. Scientific naturalism and theism as alternative worldviews
