MAARAV, A Journal for the Study of the Northwest Semitic Languages and Literatures,
is devoted to the rigorous, prudent treatment of the corpus of Northwest Semitic texts.
Its articles have a strong linguistic, philological and literary emphasis, although manuscripts on history,
archaeology, religion and culture will be seriously considered, particularly if they have a strong textual interest.
MAARAV is published twice yearly. Articles appearing in MAARAV are indexed in Old Testament Abstracts, Religious and Theological Abstracts, and Index of Articles on Jewish Studies.
