Scope/Description:

Verbum et Ecclesia is an international South African openaccess peer reviewed and accredited online journal. Only original research is considered for publication. This periodical is juridically connected to the Centre for Ministerial Development Excelsus located at the Faculty of Theology and Religion University of Pretoria. English Afrikaans and Sepedi are the languages of publication which makes the journal unique. In addition articles are also published in German Dutch and Flemish. Occasionally articles will be published in an indigenous South African language. The journal seeks to create an intra and interdisciplinary space for the conversation between theology and the sciences from a contextual perspective. It encourages research that challenges traditional discourses within and between the fields of biblical religious social and human sciences as well as the constructive engagement with the natural sciences. Verbum et Ecclesia is thus an instrument of engagement between theological disciplines on the one hand and theology and other disciplines on the other. The journal intends to publish research from an annual interdisciplinary congress at the Faculty of Theology and Religion with a special focussed theme. The Editorial Board of Verbum et Ecclesia strongly encourages contributions from Africa from women and young academics and from minority groups. Nascent global religious developments and especially reflection on these developments in the global South will be given preference. It impacts the methodology and thus the possibility that texts from these contexts can be engaged with. Special editions or Festschrifts will appear occasionally. These editions will reflect an independent theological theme or own character of a specific theological discipline.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?


III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
