Articles should include an abstract of between 100 and 200 words in French and English placed at the beginning of the article. Please supply full contact details including a short biography with institutional affiliation. Revue de Qumrân publishes affiliation and academic address of each author in each issue.


For submission and to facilitate anonymous refereeing, the author's name and institution should not appear in the submited article. Attention should be paid also on self-references, acknowledgments, or the metadata of electronic document, etc.

Revue de Qumrân uses a double-blind peer review system. The Journal committee undertakes to provide a reply within reasonable time.

English articles should follow the SBL Handbook of Style (2nd Edition) and Chicago Manual of Style. Recent issues of the Journal are the best guide to its stylistic and scholarly conventions. For the Dead Sea Scrolls, authours should follow the system for presenting texts described in DJD I, 44-48 and DJD XXXIX, 18-21. Ex.: 1QS III 15-16 (and not 1QS 3:15-16 or 1QS III, 15-16); 4Q416 1 iii 10-12; etc. Concerning the Hodayot, authors should use numbering of lines and collumns as defined in DJD XL, possibly with Sukenik numbering in brackets.

For Greek, Hebrew, Syriac or other non-Latin alphabets please use Unicode font. For exemple Gentium for the Greek, SBLHebrew for Hebrew, Estrangelo Edessa for Syriac.
