Answers in Genesis is excited to announce the launch of its online technical journal called Answers Research Journal (ARJ). Hosted at answersresearchjournal.org (but linked to AiG’s website), this is a professional peer-reviewed technical journal for the publication of interdisciplinary scientific and other relevant research from the perspective of the recent Creation and the global Flood within a biblical framework.
Addressing the need to disseminate the vast fields of research conducted by creationist experts in theology, history, archaeology, anthropology, biology, geology, astronomy, and other disciplines of science, Answers Research Journal provides scientists and students the results of cutting-edge research that demonstrates the validity of the young-earth model, the global Flood, the non-evolutionary origin of “created kinds,” and other evidences that are consistent with the biblical account of origins. The newly expanded research effort at Answers in Genesis, with the establishment of its Research Department, facilitates this further venue for publication and dissemination of the results of creationist research.
Answers in Genesis appointed Dr. Andrew Snelling, its director of research, as the ARJ editor-in-chief. Dr. Snelling, formerly a professor of geology at the Institute for Creation Research (ICR), was the founding editor of the Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal, now the Journal of Creation, and served as the editor-in-chief for the Sixth International Conference on Creationism, co-sponsored by ICR and the Creation Science Fellowship of Pittsburgh. Other PhD scientists and theologians, both on AiG’s research staff and in AiG’s large network of well-qualified resource people, serve as contributors, reviewers, and editors.
High-quality papers for Answers Research Journal, sponsored by Answers in Genesis, are now invited for submission. Interested authors should download and read the Instructions to Authors Manual (PDF) for all details of requirements, procedures, paper mechanics, referencing style, and the technical review process for submitted papers.
Papers should be no more than 10,000 words long. Color diagrams, figures, and photographs are encouraged. Papers can be in any relevant field of science, theology, history, or social science, but they must be from a young-earth and young-universe perspective. Rather than merely pointing out flaws in evolutionary theory, papers should aim to assist the development of the Creation and Flood model of origins. Papers should be submitted in a plain text, single-spaced Word or RTF file. Formatting should be kept to an absolute minimum. Do not embed graphics, tables, figures, or photographs in the text, but supply them in separate files, along with captions.
Papers, diagrams, tables, etc. should be emailed as attached files to ARJ to the email address listed in the Instructions Manual, and other requirements should be followed as per the Author Checklist in the Instructions to Authors Manual. There is no strict publication schedule. As soon as they are ready, successful papers are posted in sequence in the ARJ volume for each year. We aim to publish submitted papers within three (3) months of receipt.
Answers in Genesis hopes that the online publication of its Answers Research Journal encourages Christians globally with the results of the latest creationist research, providing them with new resources for use in their research and education, and in their witnessing to the truth and authority of God’s Word.
