The International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies produces an annual journal, the Journal of Septuagint and Cognate Studies) (JSCS). For issues 1 through 43, it was known as Bulletin of the International Organization of Septuagint and Cognate Studies (BIOSCS). With issue 44, the name changed to Journal of Septuagint and Cognate Studies. Under either name, the Journal is the periodical publication of the IOSCS. Eisenbrauns has published the Journal since Issue 34. 

Each issue contains articles, book reviews, notices of recent dissertations, and society information. The JSCS is indexed in the ATLA Religion Database, Old Testament Abstracts, and New Testament Abstracts. 

The Journal's Editor is Siegfried Kreuzer. An Editorial Board with native competence in French, German, and English assists the Editor with the peer-review process for articles submitted to the Journal, and with policy and procedures for the Journal. The current Board consists of Cécile Dogniez (Paris, France), Siegfried Kreuzer (Wuppertal, Germany), Alison Salvesen (Oxford, UK), and Glenn Wooden (Acadia Divinity College, Canada).
The Journal is sent to every current member. For subscription information, please see our membership page. The major contents of the Journal are listed elsewhere in this website. Digitized copies of the first 33 volumes of the Journal are also available. 

Volumes 1 through 33 of the Bulletin of the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies (BIOSCS) are available in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. IOSCS itself printed these first 33 volumes. They are made available here with the kind assent of Eisenbrauns, which now publishes our Journal. 

IOSCS is thankful that Eisenbrauns took over professional publication of the Bulletin and now the Journal, beginning with volume 34. Printed back issues of many volumes of BIOSCS are in stock and available from Eisenbrauns

Beginning with volume 44, the Journal is known as the Journal of Septuagint and Cognate Studies (JSCS).
