JIBS maintains an open call for submissions on any aspect pertaining to interdisciplinary biblical studies. We will occasionally issue specific calls for submissions for dedicated issues; we also encourage proposals for special issues by potential guest editors.
We welcome articles of 6000-8000 words including references. We also welcome short notes of 1000-5000 words including references for briefer discussions.
Article submissions should be anonymised to remove identifying statements or references. Please follow SBL Handbook of Style formatting using footnotes and bibliography. Submissions should be formatted in both .docx and .pdf. Images used should be open access or Creative Commons licensed. For accessibility reasons, we strongly encourage authors to keep non-English quotations to a minimum, and to use transliteration (SBL General Purpose Style) alongside translations where necessary.
