Brown Judaic Studies Monograph Series (BJS) is a peer-reviewed monograph series that publishes high-quality, specialized books aimed primarily at a scholarly audience. The first three BJS volumes were published in 1977 by Scholars Press: Tzvee Zahavy’s The Traditions of Eleazar ben Azariah (BJS 2), William Scott Green’s edited Persons and Institutions in Early Rabbinic Judaism (BJS 3), and Joshua B. Stein’s Claude Goldsmid Montefiore on the Ancient Rabbis: The Second Generation of Reform Judaism in Britain (BJS 4). BJS 1, the first volume of William Scott Green’s edited Approaches to Ancient Judaism, was published the following year. Since that time more than 350 volumes have appeared in the series.
Although currently produced and distributed by SBL Press, the official copyright holder is Brown University, and the publisher of record is Brown Judaic Studies. References to volumes in the series should use the abbreviation “BJS” to refer to the series and “Brown Judaic Studies” (not abbreviated) to refer to the publisher.
