Supplement Series

Many journals have supplement book series associated with them. The abbreviations for these series generally include the journal abbreviation + “Sup” (in roman type). For example, the SBLHS 2 §§8.4.1–2 list the following examples:

AbrN Abr-Nahrain
AbrNSup Abr-Nahrain Supplements
BASOR Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research
BASORSup Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research Supplements
BBR Bulletin for Biblical Research
BBRSup Bulletin for Biblical Research Supplements
JAAR Journal of the American Academy of Religion
JAARSup Journal of the American Academy of Religion Supplements
JSNT Journal for the Study of the New Testament
JSNTSup Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement Series
JSOT Journal for the Study of the Old Testament
JSOTSup Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series
JSP Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha
JSPSup Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha Supplement Series
NovT Novum Testamentum
NovTSup Supplements to Novum Testamentum
VT Vetus Testamentum

For Semeia, Semeia Studies, and Semeia Supplements, see our blog post here.

To these examples listed in the SBLHS 2, we would add the following:

JSJ Journal for the Study of Judaism in the Persian, Hellenistic, and Roman Periods
JSJSup Supplements to Journal for the Study of Judaism
VC Vigiliae Christianae
VCSup Vigiliae Christianae Supplements

Note: The abbreviation for the Journal of Theological Interpretation (JTI) should be added to the abbreviation for its supplement in the handbook.

JTI Journal of Theological Interpretation
JTISup Journal of Theological Interpretation Supplements
