When one is a student at a Jewish school (or, sometimes, one with a Jewish Studies department), if they are working on a research paper about Judaism, they can often publish it for feedback and acclaim through a student journal (e.g. Kol Hamevaser).

What can someone not in that position do to share their Judaism paper? I'm thinking something like an open-submission journal or blog, or a repository like arXiv.

  • What makes a journal an "open-submission journal"? Would a peer-reviewed academic journal that accepts submissions from anyone meet your creteria? – magicker72 Apr 25 '17 at 3:44
  • Anyone can start his own blog and share through social media. – rosends Apr 25 '17 at 10:12
  • @rosends if you don't have a following, no one will ever see it. At least with arXiv, for example, papers have built in communities and a permanent searchable home. – Arithmomaniac Apr 26 '17 at 12:32
  • @Arithmomaniac self-promotion through social media. No one starts with an automatic following. Cross posting on groups that have the target audience, or towards friends encourages feedback and review. – rosends Apr 26 '17 at 13:16

For papers heavily based on primary texts quotations, one can use the Sefaria Source Sheet Builder. If you make a sheet public, it can be viewed by others via referenced text, tag, or "trending".

  • Still would like a more general purpose site, if it exists. – Arithmomaniac Apr 26 '17 at 12:39

If you want more of a "peer-reviewed" journal, Haoros UBiurium of Oholei Torah takes outside contributions.

arXiv is good. You can also probably put it on archive.org.

    Judaism does not appear to be one of the subjects hosted by arXiv. – Isaac Moses Apr 25 '17 at 3:17
  • Is there some policy there which forbids such articles? I know for sure though, that you can find Judaism focused articles on SciHub. See an example here. – shmerl Apr 26 '17 at 0:08
