Journal of Ancient Judaism. Supplements
The Supplements to the Journal of Ancient Judaism (JAJ) address all aspects of Jewish literature, culture, religion, and history from the Babylonian exile through the formation of the classical rabbinic corpus. As a cross disciplinary book series JAJSup address audiences with interests in Biblical, Jewish, and historical studies. In addition to being cross-disciplinary, the series intends to be forum of discussion for scholars from all scholarly and religious backgrounds. The JAJSup are especially interested in contributions that cover wide-ranging topics through detailed, closely-worked arguments. Typically JAJSup between two and four books will appear each year in JAJSup at least 50% of which are monographs. Studies able to situate particular inquiries in the fields of Hebrew Bible, Second Temple Judaism, or Rabbinics within the broader context of the academic Jewish Studies are especially welcome, as are studies that reflect on the nature of disciplinary boundaries. In the case of collective volumes and conference proceedings this cross disciplinary approach is especially encouraged.
As a peer-reviewed series, JAJSup has an advisory board whose members will anonymously review submissions. Submissions will be accepted in English, German, and French although the majority of the published books should be written in English. On the practical side of things, the series aims to publish books that will be affordable for both libraries and individuals in order to communicate specialized research to a broader audience of libraries and scholars. All contributions to this series must follow the guidelines of the Society of Biblical Literature Handbook of Style.
