  1. Thank you for the list. Here’s another one for your consideration:


    Also, FYI, Here are three non-pentecostal specific sources:

    1. Global Missiology

    One of the published articles in the above is a mind-blowing list of online sources of free, open access articles on various subjects:

    2. Jaeger’s Massive List of Open-Access Internet Sources

    The above list includes major subject headings such as Religion, Leadership, English Second Language, Library, etc. This is massive – don’t miss it. It was done by Dr. John Jaeger – Dallas Baptist University.

    3. Directory of Open-Access Journals

    This major site includes publication in languages other than English, which could be useful in some global ed contexts.

    I am seeking to compile a list of best open-source (i.e., free and distributable) articles for developing world Bible college students. Any ideas or leads?

      • Rick,

        First, may God direct and empower your teaching this seminar. Praying for you.


        > Yes, the site offers one of the largest collections of open access resources related to the Bible and theology that I have found. >

        Do you know the administrator, Rob Bradshaw?

        Rob Bradshaw @RobBradshaw

        I have communicated with Rob. Rob has indicated he would be willing to incorporate contents of pentecostal journals into his collection if/when WAPTE posts them. Perhaps as a separate Pentecostal section, not sure. I think making his site a central clearing house is a good idea. Would still be posted on WAPTE. Not an either/or. I’ll send you my email corr. with him separately.

  2. I’d certainly be willing to host (i.e. mirror) these journals and provide a full table of contents, but at least Pentecostal Journal has now signed up with an academic publishing company, so its new content is restricted. I am waiting to hear if I can host the older material.

    • The three that require membership are Pneuma, JPT and JEPTA (the last several years), but all others should be open access. I don’t have rights to any of these others, but I would be surprised if each editor would not want their journal mirrored on your site. I could certainly help contacting the various editors, but that might come better from you Rob (as the one would be doing the work). I personally am desirous of still more solid Pentecostal resources being openly available globally (one of my brothers delivered a paper at SPS several years ago on this need:

  3. Thanks for these resources. is there any journal that has an interest in scholarly work in/by African? It appears what there is little going on to encourage scholarship of Africans on pentecostalism (I don’t mean Africans staying in the US or another foreign land).
    Could there be a journal that will be really interested in what is going on in that continent. I am available to give assistance.
