HTS Teologiese Studies/Theological Studies is an influential and frequently cited accredited peer reviewed, Open Access journal, published since 1942, that promotes multidisciplinary, religious, and biblical aspects of studies in the international arena. Since 2010, Practical Theology in South Africa united and merged into HTS Theological Studies/Theological Studies, being permanently incorporated. Each second issue of HTS Teologiese Studies/Theological Studies is dedicated to the publication of articles themed and focused on practical theology. The section Practical Theology aims to publish original contributions to the study of human action in its various forms and contexts from a practical theological perspective. It also aims to contribute to the discussion on the theory and method of practical theology as an academic discipline.
