Jewish Quarterly Review

:"Not to be confused with the Jewish Quarterly."The Jewish Quarterly Review ("JQR") is the oldest English-language journal of Judaic scholarship, established in 1888 by Israel Abrahams and Claude G. Montefiore as an outgrowth of the "Wissenschaft des Judentums" movement. It has historically been a favorite publication venue for some of the best-known names in Jewish scholarship, including Solomon Schechter, Alexander Altmann, Solomon Zeitlin, Louis Ginzberg, Menachem Kellner, Michael Friedländer, E. N. Adler, W. Bacher, L. Blau, A. Büchler, T. K. Cheyne, H. Hirschfeld, D. Kaufmann, A. Neubauer, M. Steinschneider, I. Zangwill, etc.

The JQR's conventions for transliterating Hebrew have become recognized as mainstream academic conventions.
