The Journal of the SCE

As of January 2019, the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics (JSCE) is published by  Philosophy Documentation Center twice a year with a distribution of 1400. The JSCE is comprised of scholarly papers, book reviews, and advertisements. Currently, the co-editors are Kevin Carnahan and Scott Paeth; the book review editor is Lisa Powell. The JSCE grew out of what was The Annual of the Society of Christian Ethics, and was published by Georgetown University Press. On the basis of the SCEs 21st Century Report, several changes were implemented by Christine E. Gudorf and Paul Lauritzen, who served as co-editors from 2000-2005. These changes included:  the expansion from an annual to a journal with two issues per year, the addition of book reviews, the solicitation of advertisements, and the electronic availability of essays in full text form through ATLAS and MUSE.
