Ancient Near East Monographs

The focus of this ambitious series is on the ancient Near East, including ancient Israel and its literature, from the early Neolithic to the early Hellenistic eras. Studies that are heavily philological or archaeological are both suited to this series, and can take full advantage of the hypertext capabilities of “born digital” publication. The series accepts authored works that make a sustained argument across the volume; ANEM no longer considers edited collections. Proposals and manuscripts may be submitted in either English or Spanish. Manuscripts are peer reviewed by at least two scholars in the area before acceptance. Published volumes will be held to the high scholarly standards of the SBL Press and the Centro de Estudios de Historia del Antiguo Oriente. The partnership between the SBL Press and the Centro de Estudios de Historia del Antiguo Oriente was initiated under the auspices of SBL’s International Cooperation Initiative (ICI) and represents the type of international scholarly exchange that is the goal of ICI.

For more information about the series’ editorial and peer review process, contact Jeffrey Stackert. For scholars concerned about open-access publishing and tenure or promotion, Jeffrey Stackert can provide a letter that describes the editorial standards and peer-review process for your tenure/promotion dossier.
