Answers in Genesis today announced the live posting of its online technical journal, Answers Research Journal (AnswersInGenesis.org/arj). ARJ is a professional, peer-reviewed technical journal for the publication of interdisciplinary, scientific and other relevant research from the perspective of recent Creation and a global Flood. Answers in Genesis (AiG) is also the organization that opened the acclaimed Creation Museum last May—which today, just seven and a half months after opening, will welcome its 300,000th guest.
“It is our hope that the online publication of ARJwill encourage Christians with powerful results of the latest creationist research, providing them with new resources for use in their own research and education—and in their witnessing to the truth and authority of God’s Word,” said geologist Dr. Andrew A. Snelling, editor-in-chief.
All published papers will be available to download free of charge 24/7 from the journal’s website, enabling people anywhere in the world to print out as many copies as they want, whenever they want, and e-mail the papers to friends and colleagues.
“There has been a pressing need for such access to the latest creationist research,” said Mark Looy, AiG’s CCO. “Papers can be freely downloaded, copied, and shared without restriction, so that the research is far more easily and widely distributed. This is the accelerating trend in conventional publishing.” Looy noted, too, that AiG’s award-winning main website, AnswersInGenesis.org, had over 9.5 million visits (33 million page views) in 2007.
ARJ will disseminate research conducted by experts in theology, history, archaeology, anthropology, biology, geology, astronomy and other disciplines by providing scientists, students and supporters the results of cutting-edge research that demonstrates the validity of the biblical account of origins and Noah’s Flood.
