NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS
The Journal for the Study of the Old Testament aims to offer the best in current, peer-reviewed scholarship on the Hebrew Bible across a range of critical methodologies. Contributions are welcome from both new and established scholars. The journal operates a double-blind review process in which the identities of the author and the reviewer are withheld from each other. Reviewers are looking especially for original and creative approaches to the interpretation of the Old Testament literature and cognate fields of inquiry.
Manuscripts for consideration should, if possible, be submitted in electronic form by e-mail to JSOT's Administrator, Ms Lindsay Burns, via email@example.com. The contribution should be presented in Microsoft Word format (if using WordPerfect, please convert to RTF). For the ancient languages, please ensure that the following fonts (available from http://www.sbl-site.org/Resources/Resources_BiblicalFonts.aspx ) are used: SPTiberian for Hebrew and Aramaic, SPIonic for Greek, and SPAtlantis for transliteration. Graphics other than tables should not be embedded in the document, but sent in a separate file (as an eps, jpg or tif at 300 dpi resolution).
If it is not possible to submit the article electronically, then 2 copies of the manuscript and all accompanying illustrations (if any) should be posted to: Dr John Jarick, Regent's Park College, Pusey Street, Oxford OX1 2LB, England.
All manuscripts submitted for consideration should be within the parameters of 5,000 and 10,000 words (including footnotes if any, but not including bibliography if listed separately), and should begin with an Abstract of no more than 200 words. The manuscript should be in grammatical, idiomatic English, consistently employing gender-inclusive language where appropriate. Authors for whom English is not their native tongue are asked to have their manuscripts checked for errors in language and style prior to submission. Quotations from other languages (e.g. German, French) should be translated if in the main text; the original may be reproduced in a footnote if it is important. Either British spelling (for British and non-American contributors) or American spelling (for American contributors only) should be used; please do not mix spelling conventions. Either social-scientific (i.e. author-date) referencing or traditional footnote style is acceptable. Biblical references should be given in the following style: Gen. 4.2; Isa. 34.14-15; Eccl. 10-12 (note that full verse or chapter numbers should be given, not f. or ff.). Quotations should be enclosed in single quotation marks, double quotation marks being reserved for quotations within a quoted sentence.
Manuscripts or files sent for consideration must be complete, including all necessary bibliographical details, illustrations/charts/tables, and the text and footnotes (or endnotes) all set out in double-spaced lines. The author's name should not appear on the manuscript, but please ensure that in the covering e-mail or letter the name and full contact details (including postal address and telephone number) of the author are clearly given.
Authors of accepted manuscripts will be required to grant to SAGE Publications an exclusive licence of copyright, subject to retaining their right to reuse the material in other publications written or edited by themselves and due to be published at least one year after initial publication in the journal. Accepted articles cannot be published in the absence of the signed copyright form. Authors will be sent a complimentary copy of the issue in which their article appears, and will be given a set number of accesses to their article on SAGE Journals Online (with the ability to print off that number of copies of the article), as well as the opportunity to purchase additional paper copies if they wish.
Books for review should be sent to Dr Deborah Rooke, Oxford Centre for Christianity and Culture, Regent's Park College, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 2LB, UK.
