    • Patrons
      • Semănătorul (The Sower), is the Journal of Ministry and Biblical Research of Emanuel University Oradea, Romania, and is published bi-annually, since 2020.
    • Mission Statement
      • Semănătorul (The Sower) is intented to be an international, evangelical, peer-reviewed Journal which expounds and defends historic Christian faith and informs and guides regarding faithful ministry practice. The primary audience is theological students, pastors and Christian scholars. The aim is to introduce them to valuable academic contributions from the English-speaking world and to promote Romanian theological research to the global church family. Rather than theological abstraction, the journal endeavours through biblically faithful, rigorous scholarship to address important biblical issues and practical pastoral and leadership challenges.
      • Therefore, articles which are original will be published that focus upon the disciplines of Religious Studies and Theology, including biblical themes and various practical aspects of ministry or leadership. As an institution of higher learning, Emanuel University promotes a traditionally conservative and trinitarian theology, which will be reflected in the articles of the contributors who are part of its Faculty. Articles written by scholars who share different religious views other than that of the publisher can also be accepted, therefore encouraging dialogue and debate.  Semănătorul is published in conjunction with the “Ethics and Society” Research Centre, also part of Emanuel University, which allows for the dialogue between a specifically Protestant-Evangelical morality and the philosophies of contemporary society. 
    • Editorial Policy
      • The Editorial Board will assess every submission and all contributors will be informed in due course on whether their articles are considered for publication or not. Where there are concerns about plagiarism the paper will be returned unpublished. Articles will be subject to peer review independent of Emanuel University.
