More About this Journal
Published by the Melanesian Association of Theological Schools (MATS), the Melanesian Journal of Theology was established to stimulate theological writing in Melanesia and to provide a scholarly forum for faculty and graduate students of the MATS member schools. Article submissions in the areas of applied theology, biblical studies, missiology, and theology are also invited from anyone with an interest in Melanesia and the wider South Pacific.
The Melanesian Journal of Theology is committed to the discussion of Christian faith and practice within the context of Melanesian cultures. Article submissions of up to 8,000 words (including footnotes) should be sent to the Editor. All submissions are subjected to an anonymous peer-review process designed to ensure that published articles meet appropriate scholarly standards.
The opinions expressed in the articles published in this journal are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the Editor or the member colleges of MATS. All articles have been edited to meet the requirements of the journal.
The journal is published semi-annually, normally in April and October.
Articles may be submitted to the Editor at any time for consideration.
