"Cultic Studies Review: An Internet Journal of Research, News & Opinion" is the successor to the academic journal the "Cultic Studies Journal". Though the "Cultic Studies Review" is published first in online format, it is also later published in a triannual, bound, print version [ Cultic Studies Review: Intro] , Michael D. Langone, Ph.D., editor, Vol. 1, No. 1, 2002.] . The current editor is Michael D. Langone, Ph.D. Main subjects covered include cults, psychology and religion [ [ ISSN 1539-0152] , "Subjects: Cults -- Periodicals. Psychology and religion - Periodicals.", 2006.] .


The "Cultic Studies Journal" was originally published by the American Family Foundation, currently known as the International Cultic Studies Association. The first issue was published in 1984. The founding editor was Michael Langone, Ph.D. In 2002, the journal reorganized as the "Cultic Studies Review" and merged with related publications: "The Cult Observer", "Cultic Studies Journal", and "Cults and Society".

According to Dr. Langone's inaugural introduction article, the reason for the switch to "Cultic Studies Journal" was to be able to offer "peer-reviewed, scholarly articles, news on groups and topics (e.g., children and cultic groups), opinion columns, personal accounts of ex-members, and high quality articles for laypersons.".
