Zygon: Journal of Religion & Science is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal covering religion and science published by Wiley-Blackwell. It was established in 1966 and the editor-in-chief is Willem B. Drees (Leiden University). Zygon is sponsored by the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science and the Center for Advanced Study in Religion and Science.

The name "Zygon" (mod. L., ad. ζυγόν Gr. yoke.), according to the journal founder Ralph Wendell Burhoe, is the Greek term for anything which joins two bodies, especially the yoking or harnessing of a team which must pull together effectively. The Zygon is the symbol of the journal, its aim being to reunite the "split team" of values and knowledge.[citation needed]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2011 impact factor of 0.274, ranking it 29th out of 37 journals in the category "Social Issues".[1]
