Peer Review Policy

The Journal of Jewish Identities is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed forum for contesting ideas and debates concerning the formations of, and transformations in, Jewish identities in its various aspects, layers, and manifestations. Submissions are invited from all fields in the Humanities and Social Sciences and from the full range of methodologies. Diverse theoretical and philosophical approaches and methodologies, interdisciplinary research studies, as well as instructive case studies are particularly welcome. The Journal publishes empirical and theoretical articles, documents, an occasional debate section, as well as review essays and book reviews.

Submissions must be in the English language and are considered for publication on the understanding that the author(s) offer the Journal of Jewish Identities, the exclusive option to publish and that the paper is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All articles are reviewed by an editorial board member for suitability in the Journal of Jewish Identities. Articles deemed suitable are then sent out for anonymous double blind peer review. Articles are generally sent to two reviewers. In cases where there are strongly divergent opinions on the article, a review from a third reviewer might be sought. Authors are given an opportunity to revise submissions and the revised article is returned to the reviewers and editor in chief for reconsideration. Reviews are typically obtained with 90 days.
