Biblical Research Bulletin is published in annual volumes, beginning with Volume I in the year 2001. Thus, for example, any article published in the year 2007 belongs to Volume VII. Articles published in an annual volume are numbered serially with Arabic numerals (example: “5”). Therefore, for citation purposes, a given article would appear by Author, “Title,” Biblical Research Bulletin, followed by Vol. VII No. 5 (2008) or simply VII.5 (2008), depending on the academic format used.
BRB is a universal access journal, and requires no subscription. However, users must follow all utilization and citation instructions contained on the cover page of each article published herein. Please refer to the cover sheet of any BRBarticle or book review for these details.
BRB’s Magazine section includes articles and other items of interest that are written in a more casual, popular style, but are of interest to both scholars and lay-readers. BRB also publishes book reviews. To access an article or book review, click on the selected category above. Then click on the article/review you wish to read. Each is a simple pdf file.
