A Statement on behalf of the publisher and the editorial leadership of Dead Sea Discoveries

Brill and the Editors of Dead Sea Discoveries recently learned that one of our board members, Professor Jan Joosten, has been sentenced by a court in France over possession of child pornography. We are deeply shocked by these facts and express our sincere sympathy with all victims and their families. We strongly renounce his abhorrent behavior and have removed Professor Joosten from the Editorial Board with immediate effect.
