We are receiving article submissions!

We stopped accepting article submissions as of June 15, 2022, for Volume I of the 2022 editions. We expect Volume I to be available in early Autumn of 2022.

Guidelines for articles and book reviews

 

  • Submissions of articles and/or book reviews can be made online using our contact form.
  • Please submit your articles as Microsoft Word documents in .docx, .doc, or .rtf format. PDF files may also be considered. 
  • All manuscripts must conform to the Chicago Manual of Style. (See chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html.) 
  • We are eager to publish scholarly papers written for a scholarly audience by experts in a wide variety of disciplines. While we are not interested in publishing popular-level articles, we also hope the level of writing is accessible to audiences who may not have expertise in the field of study being explored.        
  • We do not have a word count maximum in place for articles and book reviews. We do require, however, that the submission adequately covers its subject before submitting.
  • To have your article or book review included in the JISCA, you must be an active members of ISCA in the year the manuscript is submitted and/or published. 
  • Content must be fully harmonious with the ISCA doctrinal statement and the creeds and documents that the statement points to as clarifying and expanding the statement. This includes an uncompromising stance on the authority, inspiration, infallibility, and inerrancy of the Bible. We want our journal to show the world not only that scholars who hold to biblical inerrancy are capable of great scholarship but that holding to biblical inerrancy is actually a boon to great scholarship. 
  • We are open to considering articles that have been previously published elsewhere. The author of the article is responsible for having the copyright holder email the editor directly, granting permission to republish the article.
  • The journal editor reserves the right to notify any academic institution that the author is associated with if an article submission contains plagiarized content, even if the content is self-plagiarism.
  • Once the editor receives a submission, it will be prepared for blind review before it is sent to our peer-reviewers.
  • For further inquiries concerning manuscript content or journal policies, please contact the JISCA editor through our contact page.
