An international theological journal, critically reflecting upon Christian faith and life in the contemporary world

Support Open Access


HOLINESS is an online journal available directly to readers across the world, without the need to register or pay a subscription. Readers may sign up in order to receive an email prompt when a new edition is published.


We invite original contributions from any source, not previously published, which are directed to the focus and ethos of the journal, and which meet the standard required, to be considered for inclusion in HOLINESS. Articles that address a future theme are most likely to be chosen. No fee is paid for contributions published, and contributors make no payment for publication. Contributors retain their own copyright in their work, while acknowledging HOLINESS as the place of first publication. Please see Guidance for contributors.

Peer Reviewers

We welcome offers from suitably qualified people around the world who wish to act as voluntary peer reviewers for HOLINESS, in respect of articles in the area of their specialism. Please contact Andrew Stobart the Commissioning Editor, at As well as appointing two academic reviewers for each article, we will appoint a reader who will assess how accessible it is for the ordinary practitioner (eg readable in style; of practical use in ministry and life).


Wesley House is bearing the major financial costs of publishing HOLINESS, with support from the Discipleship and Ministries Learning Network of the Methodist Church in Britain, but if you would like to support the principle and practice of open access, you can make a donation to help us continue to offer this service.
