Judaica Petropolitana Author Guidelines
All research articles and discussions published in the journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and double-blind anonymized refereeing. The referees are always recognized world experts in the area of the topic. All articles and discussions require positive reviewer's report before publication.
By submitting a manuscript to the JP, the author acknowledges that the work is original, has not appeared in print and is not under consideration elsewhere. Papers are published on the understanding that they have not been published before and are not concurrently under offer to any other journal. Authors will usually receive a decision on their articles within a month of receipt.
Structure and topics of the JP mainly accords to the principles of research policy and teaching activities of the Department of Jewish Culture (the St. Petersburg State University) and the Chais Center for Jewish Studies (the Hebrew University in Jerusalem).
The collaborative agreement between the founding partners, signed in the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, at Nov. 15, 2012, states the principles of journal policy, concerning basic premises of the JP, structure and membership of the Editorial Council and the Editorial Board.
JP welcomes submissions featuring novel formats. While it is anticipated most submissions will represent recent scholarship, they may also include essays on contemporary issues or perspectives, results of unique workshops, and/or discussions featuring a wide-range of perspectives.
JP especially welcomes novel submissions from promising scholars, who have just started their career in the Jewish Studies.
Indexing and Abstracting of the JP is planning for most local and world-wide databases in Jewish studies and culture.
