Pacifica is an ecumenical journal. Articles treating the history or concerns of particular Christian traditions are welcome provided their content can be judged to be of of interest on a wider Christian basis.
Information for Contributors
In general, articles should be between 5,000 and 8,000 words in length, written in a lucid but scholarly style, accessible to a broad, theologically literate audience of scholars, students and pastors. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in MS Word format to email@example.com.
To preserve as far as possible the objectivity of the review process, authors are asked not to include their names or other identifying material on their manuscripts. Authors should retain a copy for the purpose of checking proofs. Please guarantee that the manuscript has not been submitted for publication elsewhere. It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that any quoted material does not infringe copyright and that all requisite permissions have been obtained.
Along with manuscripts, authors are asked to provide an Abstract to appear at the head of the article, and also a few autobiographical sentences (current appointment, scholarly interests or specialisations, recent publications, and so on) for the Notes on Contributors page, plus an email address.
Manuscripts will be submittd for peer review by independent readers. Authors receive feedback from the Editor from the peer review process and a decision about whether or not to proceed. If the submission is accepted for publication in the journal, the manuscript may be returned to the author in order that necessary revisions are made and to ensure that the final submission conforms to the journal style.
Authors of papers published in Pacifica will receive 25 offprints free of charge. Further offprints may be purchased from the Manager. Pacifica is a refereed journal and appears as such in the (Australian) Department of Education, Science and Training Register of Refereed Journals.
