The new ISCAST journal
website is launching soon.

Christian Perspectives on Science and Technology.
Article and review proposals are now invited for the relaunched ISCAST journal.

The ISCAST journal, Christian Perspectives on Science and Technology, will be relaunched in 2022. Capitalising on the previous years of publication (online since 2006; its rich archive is available on the ISCAST website), the journal will enter a new stage of life with its relaunch as a world-standard online academic resource.

The ISCAST journal is unique in the Australian landscape and one of the very few journals globally that discusses the nexus of science, technology, faith, ethics, and spirituality. In so doing, it advances ISCAST’s mission of promoting a climate of mutual understanding and constructive exchange between science and technology practitioners, and people of faith. The target readership includes academics interested in science and faith, as well as educators, church leaders, and postgraduate and graduate students.

The relaunched journal will be an online, open-access resource, inviting original contributions from national and international scholars. It will publish book reviews and double-blind peer-reviewed articles.

We especially invite proposals for articles in science/technology that have theological/ethical/spiritual implications, and articles in theology/ethics/spirituality that engage scientific/technological topics. Original studies of the history of science and faith are equally welcome.

To celebrate its relaunch, three prizes of AUD 500 each (generously offered by ARTFInc) will be awarded for the best articles published in the ISCAST Journal in 2022 under the following categories:

  • Best science/technology article that has theological/ethical/spiritual implications;
  • Best theology/ethics/spirituality article that engages scientific/technological topics;
  • Best article by a postgraduate student.

The editors, Doru Costache and Mark Worthing, are assisted by an advisory board of academics from Australia and abroad, and by a local editorial committee. The book reviews editor is David Hooker. A broad pool of national and international referees ensures high-quality and timely feedback on submitted materials.

Once an article is submitted, the editors aim to provide an initial answer as to the suitability of the material within two weeks of reception. If the submitted material is suitable for publication in the journal, it will be sent to two anonymous referees. Articles accepted after review will be published on the journal’s website once revisions are implemented.

Authors are asked to send proposed articles and reviews to Editor@ISCAST.org.
