Acta Theologica receives international recognition
2007-10-02

 

Acta Theologica, the accredited theological journal of the Faculty of Theology at the University of the Free State (UFS), was recently honoured as the first South African theological journal to be accepted for indexing in the Arts & Humanities Citation Index of the American International Scientific Index (ISI). The aim of the ISI is to identify and index the world’s most influential academic journals. Each year about 2 000 academic journals are evaluated, of which only 10-12% are added to the list. The South African government uses the ISI list, as well as its own list, for funding research at South African universities. Due to the ISI’s high standards, only a small minority of South African academic journals have succeeded in being added to the ISI list. Here are, from the left: Prof. Hermie van Zyl (Dean of the UFS Faculty of Theology) and Prof. Francois Tolmie (Head of the UFS Department of New Testament) with copies of the journal.
