Editorial Policies


 1.     Each article submitted for publication should be original, unpublished, and written in English. It must be double-spaced and must include an abstract (50-150 words).

2.     The manuscript should follow the reference style and abbreviations in the SBL Handbook (see Patrick H. Alexander et al., eds., The SBL Handbook of Style for Ancient Near Eastern, Biblical, and Early Christian Studies [Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 1999], 38-63, 121-152). Because a wider readership is encouraged, Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, and other Ancient Near Eastern languages should be transliterated, following the conventions in the SBL Handbook, 25-29.

3.     Each article submitted to VVUJT is sent anonymously to two readers of, but not limited to, the International Review Board who are specialists in that field. The criteria that determine the acceptance of the manuscript include (1) significance of the study, (2) original contribution, (3) logical presentation, and (4) adequate documentation. The final decision on whether or not to publish a particular article is made by the editor in consultation with the editorial board.

4.     Before final publication, each author will receive proofs in electronic format, which must be reworked/corrected (if required), read thoroughly, and returned to the editor within a specified period of time.
