Submission Policy

The Journal editorial team welcomes all article submissions for consideration for current or future issues. Any submissions not used in the current issue are kept on file for potential future use. Urantia Association International does not compensate any author through payment or in any other manner for such voluntary submissions. The Journal editorial team reserves the right to reject or edit materials as it deems necessary for publication and, if edited, will notify the author of any changes for their approval.

Please send correspondence or article submissions for the Journal to the above Chicago address or email the Chief Editor, Mark Blackham.

We ask that submissions follow our citation guidelines when quoting from The Urantia Book, e.g. [Paper 1:5.10, page 28.7] where the first set of numbers refers to paper, section, and paragraph, and the second set refers to the page and paragraph of the editions of The Urantia Book published by Urantia Foundation. If you wish to emphasize words that are not already emphasized in The Urantia Book, add “emphasis added” at the end of the page reference.

Please limit the size of submissions to 3,000 words or less, and avoid overuse of quotes from the book. These are more effective if used sparingly and for emphasis. Instead, use your own words or paraphrase while still adding a citation for reference. For example: 

“The concept of the Universal Father enabled us to comprehend God as divine creator” (1:0.1).
