Submissions

We invite qualified writers to submit articles and book reviews for publication consideration to the journal. When article manuscripts are submitted to the Trinity Journal editorial board, the following factors should be considered:

We look for articles that exhibit

  • excellent scholarship
  • clear style and presentation
  • applicability for the church today

Our readers are mostly

  • students
  • teachers
  • pastors
  • missionaries
  • educated lay people
  • others in Christian ministry

Style Guidelines

All manuscripts sent to Trinity Journal for consideration should conform to:
“Guidelines for Journal of Biblical Literature Articles” JBL Instructions   (requires Adobe Reader), unless otherwise noted.

A useful resource for standard abbreviations in biblical and theological studies is:
Patrick E. Alexander et al., eds., SBL Handbook of Style (Hendrickson, 1999)

Whenever matters of style are not covered there, please refer to:
The Chicago Manual of Style, 15E (University of Chicago Press, 2003)

Under no circumstances will files without Unicode Fonts be accepted. Free Hebrew and Greek fonts are available at http://www.sbl-site.org/educational/biblicalfonts.aspx. Additional questions concerning this guideline can be addressed to the editor at trinjournal@teds.edu.

Submission Process

We ask that authors enclose an abstract with each article they submit for consideration in addition to the manuscript text of the article.  Manuscripts should be no more than 10,000 words (excluding footnotes).

Manuscripts are preferred in MS Word with Unicode fonts and should be submitted by using the following link:  https://trinj.submittable.com/submit

Submitted articles are distributed to the Trinity Journal editorial board with the author’s name omitted from the manuscript. The board then determines whether the article should be published, and the editor notifies the author accordingly. Note that the editor reserves the right to decline unsolicited manuscripts.

Book Review Submissions

If you wish to submit a book review, follow our Book Review Guidelines. As with articles, note that the book review editor reserves the right to decline unsolicited manuscripts.  If you would like to join the list of potential reviewers for future publications, please complete our Reviewer Data Form.
