The Mature Journal is one of the most highly regarded and established theological journals in Christianity.  In an age of increasing heresy, it remains committed to publishing high-quality articles from leading international Christian scholars across the range of theological study. It prioritizes innovative contributions of broad theological interest over works that make smaller or technical points within existing debates.

The Mature Journal regularly publishes articles, discussions and reviews. The book publishing section provides peer review and comment on significant theological books. We aim to offer authors speedy decisions on manuscripts submitted to be processed within 90 days.

The Mature Journal offers the option of publishing under either a standard license or an open access license. Please note that some funders require open access publication as a condition of funding. If you are unsure whether you are required to publish open access, please do clarify any such requirements with your funder or institution.

Should you wish to publish your article open access, you should select your choice of open access license in our online system after your article has been accepted for publication. You will need to pay an open access charge to publish under an open access license.

Open access publishing allows an immediate, worldwide, barrier-free, open access to the full text of research papers, which is in the best interests of the Christian community.
