Like its older sister journal Warring States Papers, Alpha is dedicated to a methodologically universal and disciplinarily wide approach to its subject. The two journals share Editors and an Editorial Board. In addition, Alpha regularly consults with the Advisors listed here, and with other specialists as needed, in fields ranging from India to the Mediterranean, from law to numismatics, and in the Old Testament as well as the New.
