Since January 2010 Scripture Bulletin has been published exclusively online. Articles may be downloaded in pdf format, for which a suitable reader such as Adobe Reader is required. To download an article, simply click on the pdf icon which appears below the abstract or opening paragraph.
Articles from past online issues are available to browse online. You can either:
  1. Click on the relevant section (Editorial, Articles or Reviews & Notices) and browse the contents (most recent first).
  2. Search for a word or phrase using the search box at the top-right of every page (this performs a full-text search of all articles).
  3. Click on 'Past issues' then select the issue year and month
Additionally, all print issues since the first issue in 1969 are available to download. To access these either use the search box (which searches the full text of every issue automatically) or click on 'Past issues' > 'Pre-2010 issues'. A separate online archive of Scripture, the predecessor to Scripture Bulletin, is also available.
Articles may be cited as if printed conventionally, using the page numbers which appear in the pdf document. The volume and issue number of the current issue are displayed on the front page, and for previous issues may be found in the editorial article corresponding to the publication date.
Manuscripts for publication should be typed with double spacing and footnotes/endnotes numbered consecutively and submitted on disk, formatted in Word.
