The Journal of Semitic Studies Book Supplement Series

The Journal of Semitic Studies publishes a Supplement series of books. The aim in this series is to provide an opportunity for publication of more substantial works of monograph length (well beyond the scope of articles published in the Journal itself) and for collective works on particular themes. The Supplements focus on textual work in Semitic languages. A Supplement may be devoted to a particular text or texts, though it could be text-based in a broader way.

Proposals for further titles

The editors welcome proposals for further titles in the series. The Supplements accepted for publication are always focussed on textual work in Semitic languages. This definition would, however, normally exclude submissions specifically on Judaism and Islam as world religions, sociology, anthropology and politics. On the other hand submissions on Modern Hebrew and Arabic literature and on contemporary interpretation of classical religious texts are welcome and are the subject of several published or planned Supplements.

Initial enquiries should include information on the content of the proposed book, on the likely number of pages and on whether any illustrations might be involved. The Editors have to consider the cost of production and likely sales of the volume. Cost can be affected by the length of the work and by the need for illustrations. Sometimes a subsidy has to be provided by the author. No royalties are paid.
