JJS welcomes submission of articles which make a fresh and original contribution to all branches and all periods of Jewish Studies, extending from the biblical to the modern era. While the Journal is best known as a leader in scholarship of the earlier periods, we would welcome more submissions concerned with medieval and modern Jewish history and culture. Article-length publication of important new texts, manuscripts or inscriptions is encouraged. Review articles or longer critical discussions of important books are accepted. Submissions from pre-doctoral students are not encouraged.
Articles should be the original work of the author. They should not normally exceed 10,000 words, including footnotes and bibliography. Footnotes should not be of excessive length. The argument should be clearly presented, with adequate signposting of its stages by means of subtitles, and some indication of its wider significance.
Contributors must provide an abstract not exceeding 150 words together with their submission.
No article submitted for publication can be considered unless it is received in the form of an email attachment, both as a Word file and as a PDF file, at the JJS editorial email address email@example.com. All submissions must include the article, abstract, and the full author's details including name, title, email address for further correspondence, and postal address to which proofs may eventually be sent.
No fee is offered, but all contributors of articles receive a copy of the issue containing their contribution, and twenty-five offprints of the article itself. Reviewers of books receive a copy of the issue containing their review.
Copyright in all material published belongs to the Journal, and no article may be reprinted without the Editors' written permission.
Style of Reference
References should be consistent. The following pattern is recommended:
The abbreviations of Classical works and authors should follow the Oxford Classical Dictionary (3rd edition).
Use only Arabic numerals for ancient works.
