Anglican Theological Review

eISSN: 21636214 | ISSN: 00033286 | Current volume: 103 | Current issue: 2
For over one hundred years, the Anglican Theological Review has been the unofficial journal of the seminaries of the Episcopal Church in the United States and the Anglican Church of Canada.

We are committed to creative intellectual engagement with Christian tradition, and to interdisciplinary inquiry that includes literature and the arts, philosophy, and science. In the spirit of sound learning that marks Anglican divinity, we aim to foster scholarly excellence and thoughtful conversation in and for the church.

The contents of the ATR are intended to be focally, but not exclusively, Anglican in subject matter and approach. Authors belong to many traditions and communities. Essays published in the “Articles” section of the journal have been peer-reviewed.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

1. What do we publish?

1.1 Aims & Scope

Before submitting your manuscript to the Anglican Theological Review please ensure you have read the following Aims & Scope:

For over one hundred years, the Anglican Theological Review has been the unofficial journal of the seminaries of the Episcopal Church in the United States and the Anglican Church of Canada.

We are committed to creative intellectual engagement with Christian tradition, and to interdisciplinary inquiry that includes literature and the arts, philosophy, and science. In the spirit of sound learning that marks Anglican divinity, we aim to foster scholarly excellence and thoughtful conversation in and for the church.

The contents of the ATR are intended to be focally, but not exclusively, Anglican in subject matter and approach. Authors belong to many traditions and communities. Essays published in the “Articles” section of the journal have been peer-reviewed.

1.2 Article Types

The Anglican Theological Review is committed to creative engagement with Christian tradition, and to interdisciplinary inquiry that includes philosophy, science, and literature and the arts. We are happy to consider articles that pertain to any of the classical disciplines of theological study, and particularly encourage authors to submit work that speaks to current issues and debates. Article types include:

  • Original articles
  • Practicing Theology articles
  • book reviews
  • Reviews in depth
  • Review essays

Submissions should be accompanied by:

  1. a precis between 100 and 150 words in length,

2. Editorial policies

2.1 Peer review policy

The Anglican Theological Review is a refereed journal with a blind peer review policy.

The Anglican Theological Review adheres to a blinded peer review process in which the reviewer’s name is routinely withheld from the author unless the reviewer requests a preference for their identity to be revealed.

As standard practice, SAGE does not permit the use of author-suggested reviewers.

2.2 Authorship

All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved, regardless of their status. A student is usually listed as principal author on any multiple-authored publication that substantially derives from the student’s dissertation or thesis.

2.3 Acknowledgements

All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an Acknowledgements section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, or a department chair who provided only general support.

Please supply any personal acknowledgements separately to the main text to facilitate anonymous peer review.

For the purpose of double-blind reviewing, the article should be anonymised in the text, and in the numbered notes where single or multiple citations could reveal the author of the paper being reviewed. 

2.4 Funding

If authors of articles in the Anglican Theological Review need to make a funding acknowledgement for their article, this can be accommodated. Please visit the Funding Acknowledgements page on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway for more information.

2.5 Declaration of conflicting interests

If authors require it the Anglican Theological Review can accommodate the publication of a declaration of any conflicting interests. Our good practice guidelines can be found on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway.

3. Publishing Policies

3.1 Publication ethics

SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway.

3.1.1 Plagiarism

The Anglican Theological Review and SAGE take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism, or other breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our authors and we always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of published articles. Equally, we seek to protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked with duplication-checking software. Where an article, for example, is found to have plagiarized other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient acknowledgement, or where the authorship of the article is contested, we reserve the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction); retracting the article; taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of the author's institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; or taking appropriate legal action.

3.1.2 Prior publication

If material has been previously published it is not generally acceptable for publication in a SAGE journal. However, there are certain circumstances where previously published material can be considered for publication. Please refer to the guidance on the SAGE Author Gateway or if in doubt, contact the Editor at the address given below.

3.2 Contributor's publishing agreement

Before publication, SAGE requires the author as the rights holder to sign a Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement. SAGE’s Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement is an exclusive licence agreement which means that the author retains copyright in the work but grants SAGE the sole and exclusive right and licence to publish for the full legal term of copyright. Exceptions may exist where an assignment of copyright is required or preferred by a proprietor other than SAGE. In this case copyright in the work will be assigned from the author to the society. For more information please visit the SAGE Author Gateway.

3.3 Open access and author archiving

The Anglican Theological Review offers optional open access publishing via the SAGE Choice programme. For more information please visit the SAGE Choice website. For information on funding body compliance, and depositing your article in repositories, please visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.

4.2 Artwork, figures and other graphics

Figures supplied in colour will appear in colour online regardless of whether or not these illustrations are reproduced in colour in the printed version. For specifically requested colour reproduction in print, you will receive information regarding the costs from SAGE after receipt of your accepted article.

4.3 Supplemental material

This journal is able to host additional materials online (e.g. datasets, podcasts, videos, images etc) alongside the full-text of the article. For more information please refer to our guidelines on submitting supplementary files.

5. Submitting your manuscript

Anglican Theological Review is hosted on SAGE Track, a web based online submission and peer review system powered by ScholarOne™ Manuscripts. Visit https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/to login and submit your article online.

IMPORTANT: Please check whether you already have an account in the system before trying to create a new one. If you have reviewed or authored for the journal in the past year it is likely that you will have had an account created.  For further guidance on submitting your manuscript online please visit ScholarOne Online Help.

 

5.1 ORCID

As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.

We encourage all authors and co-authors to link their ORCIDs to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. We collect ORCID IDs during the manuscript submission process and your ORCID ID then becomes part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID ID is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.

If you do not already have an ORCID ID please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.

5.2 Information required for completing your submission

You will be asked to provide contact details and academic affiliations for all co-authors via the submission system and identify who is to be the corresponding author. These details must match what appears on your manuscript. The affiliation listed in the manuscript should be the institution where the research was conducted. If an author has moved to a new institution since completing the research, the new affiliation can be included in a manuscript note at the end of the paper. At this stage please ensure you have included all the required statements and declarations and uploaded any additional supplementary files (including reporting guidelines where relevant).

5.3 Permissions

Please also ensure that you have obtained any necessary permission from copyright holders for reproducing any illustrations, tables, figures or lengthy quotations previously published elsewhere. For further information including guidance on fair dealing for criticism and review, please see the Copyright and Permissions page on the SAGE Author Gateway.

6. On acceptance and publication

6.1 SAGE Production

Your SAGE Production Editor will keep you informed as to your article’s progress throughout the production process. Proofs will be made available to the corresponding author via our editing portal SAGE Edit or by email, and corrections should be made directly or notified to us promptly. Authors are reminded to check their proofs carefully to confirm that all author information, including names, affiliations, sequence and contact details are correct, and that Funding and Conflict of Interest statements, if any, are accurate. Please note that if there are any changes to the author list at this stage all authors will be required to complete and sign a form authorising the change.

6.2 Online First publication

Online First allows final articles (completed and approved articles awaiting assignment to a future issue) to be published online prior to their inclusion in a journal issue, which significantly reduces the lead time between submission and publication. Visit the SAGE Journals help page for more details, including how to cite Online First articles.

6.3 Access to your published article

SAGE provides authors with online access to their final article.

6.4 Promoting your article

Publication is not the end of the process! You can help disseminate your paper and ensure it is as widely read and cited as possible. The SAGE Author Gateway has numerous resources to help you promote your work. Visit the Promote Your Article page on the Gateway for tips and advice.
