HTS Teologiese Studies/Theological Studies

Hervormde Teologiese Studies (better known as HTS Teologiese Studies/Theological Studies) is an international, online, open-access journal currently owned by the Netherdutch Reformed Church of Africa. In order to avoid confusing the journal with the Harvard Theological Studies series (abbr. HTS), we recommend the following abbreviation (see SBLHS 2 §§8.4.1, 8.4.2; Schwertner 2014):

HvTSt Hervormde Teologiese Studies (HTS Teologiese Studies/HTS Theological Studies)

The journal was founded in 1943 and therefore has a long history of published articles. Prior to 2009, articles included page numbers that ran sequentially through the journal volume. These pre-2009 articles should be cited as other journal articles with a print counterpart:

15. Jerome H. Neyrey, “Spaced Out: ‘Territoriality’ in the Fourth Gospel,” HvTSt 58 (2002): 632–63, doi: 10.4102/hts.v58i2.568.

Neyrey, Jerome H. “Spaced Out: ‘Territoriality’ in the Fourth Gospel.” HvTSt 58 (2002): 632–63. doi: 10.4102/hts.v58i2.568.

Since articles are numbered sequentially throughtout the entire volume, one does not need to include the issue number (see SBLHS 2 §6.3.1). The DOI (digital object identifier) is optional.

Beginning in 2009, volumes ceased to include sequential page numbers, instead including an article number and internal article page numbers. Post-2009 articles should therefore be cited as electronic journal articles without a print counterpart, including the volume number, issue number, article number, internal page numbers (in footnotes), and doi (SBLHS 2 §§6.3.10, 6.4.15):

16. Christo Lombaard, “Theological Education, Considered from South Africa: Current Issues for Cross-Contextual Comparison,” HvTSt 72.1 (2016): art. 2851, p. 1, doi: 10.4102/hts.v72i1.2851.
