Aramaic Studies: the leading journal for Aramaic language and literature.

This journal brings all aspects of the various forms of Aramaic and their literatures together to help shape the field of Aramaic Studies. It is the main outlet for the study of all Aramaic dialects, including the languages and literatures of Old Aramaic, Achaemenid Aramaic, Hatran, Palmyrene, Nabataean, Qumran Aramaic, Mandaic, Syriac, the various Jewish dialects of Aramaic and Neo-Aramaic.

Aramaic Studies seeks contributions of a linguistic, literary, exegetical or theological nature for any of the dialects and periods involved, from detailed grammatical work to narrative analysis, from short notes to fundamental research. All contributions are subjected to peer review.

While almost every script of the relevant languages can be printed, Aramaic Studies encourages its authors to provide modern translations of quotations in any of these languages for the benefit of a wide readership, including biblical exegetes and historians whose field of expertise is not Aramaic.
