Welcome to the landing page for scholarship and research here in the Office of Archives, Statistics, and Research! While ASTR is known for its support of research into Church history (as well as its own research into Church history), Adventist scholars conduct research in a variety of professional fields. We see it as part of our mission to support this research.
Here you can find resources related to human-subject research, historical research, and historical-theological research, as well as information on how to use our Archives and Library resources. If you have questions, simply email us at [email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you.
