How to publish in this journal


When the Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament was first published in 1987, it was expected to become the principal forum of Scandinavian Old Testament research. Reality has surpassed the expectations of the founders, as Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament is rapidly becoming one of the major outlets of international Old Testament scholarship, although without losing its specific Scandinavian character. Contributions by leading scholars have in recent years changed the scholarly understanding of the history of Israel. Such contributions have often been published in the Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament, including the editor’s “The Old Testament—A Hellenistic Book?” (Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament 7, 1993) that opened up for a totally new direction in the discussion about the origins of the Old Testament. In this capacity the Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament has become one of the principal outlets of the so-called “Copenhagen School of Old Testament Studies.” But its scope has never been limited to only one position of Old Testament studies, and articles by scholars from all parts of the world and representing almost every position as to Old Testament studies are published in the Scandinavian Journal of Old Testament Studies.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
