Guidelines for Authors Submitting Works to Theological Studies
Submitting a Manuscript
Submitting a Book Review
Theological Studies does not accept unsolicited a reviews. Writers of assigned book reviews and shorter notices receive a hard copy of guidelines along with the book they have agreed to review. We have placed downloadable PDF versions of those guides below:
TS Book Review Guidelines
The book review section of our journal is the most read of all the sections. To keep readers returning to this section, we strive for a style that is sensibly consistent and even, without forcing reviewers into a rigid mold. Most important is for reviewers to be respectful and gracious while being professionally critical and truthful. Adhering to our guidelines will help us maintain our standards.
TS Shorter Notice Guidelines
What is said under the book review guidelines holds here as well. More specific to writers of notices is to realize that we do not regard notices as less important than reviews. Nor do we regard books “noticed” as less important than books given full reviews. Rather, notices are most often assigned to shorter books and to books that are too massive or complex even for a review, but to which we want to draw readers’ attention. The latter motive also sometimes plays into “noticing” books in languages other than English.
