    If you mean those papers from the annual meeting, they can’t because the copyrights are held by their authors. And their Brill contract might prevent doing that with Pneuma articles.

    Dave Ketter William DeArteaga Surely most of these have expired and could be negotiated. After all, 99% of printed periodicals in America have been freely offered online Why hold on to scholarly resources that can help millions Pentecostals and theologians worldwide and Make Theology Great Again? https://app.box.com/s/p6p7jd4w4l5tonzejtj51ozdgxuv4fir

      Copyrights don’t expire until 70 years after the life of the author.

    The very notion of copyrighted “Pentecostal” material is chilling.

      Not for nothing; but I’d like the ability to put mine into a larger book that is more readily available and accessible to people.

      If the information and insights came through natural/wordly means, then I would agree, yes, there is a proprietary interest in them. If they came from the Spirit of God, withholding them would seem contrary to Christ’s commandment, “Freely ye have received, freely give.” I suppose each of us must decide whether what we have received was by the Spirit or by academic efforts.

      Publishing costs are high and must be covered somehow. No argument there. But once they are covered there is no problem to make the papers free for all to read. Furthermore, most papers presented come with membership dues anyway. Making even some papers free would promote the magazine and bring more readers. In global Pentecostalism context where this could mean millions the idea is worth at least some consideration. Other publishers have long done it with great success and avid returns

      A.J. Bible These are not books but research papers presented upon one’s paid membership ie costs covered by author. As part of this process they are all already posted on the internet It is a matter of allowing free access. I’ve authored over two dozen books and have made them available on Kindle where possible. This group has also helped several Pentecostal foundations publish and promote their scholarly research at virtually no charge. We can do the same for Dake Publishers as many resources from Dake Bible are already circulating free on the internet

    Dave Ketter No argument against copyright. But for digital online version copyright could be negotiated to 25 yrs as well

    No one is saying make it all free, but if its 25 yrs old (SPS started 1982) make it free for all to read – what could be that big of a deal?

    I know 2 dozen SPS authors in this group alone that will GLADLY release personal copyrights to make their papers free to read to Pentecostals globally – isnt our mandate to reach the whole world anyway? And we can help. We’ve done it before with other Pentecostal publishers. Nothing to lose. There’s only something to gain for global Pentecostalism and it is at least worth some consideration and perhaps voting as agenda item in the business meeting William DeArteaga Daniel Rushing Michael Ellis Carter Jr.

      I agree with you Troy Day this could help us shape the future of Pentecostals globally.

      Overall this is not a small issue. Imagine the gain for Pentecostal scholars, students, pastors, churches and general readers SPS papers 25 yrs and older are released this year alone. That means a decade long of Pentecostal scholarship 1982-1990 – basically the 80s most crucial for the establishing of the 70s Charismatic churches and the baby boomers as Pentecostal wing in America alone not to mention the rise of the 3rd wavers and the overall research for Classical Pentecostalism right there while establishing its doctrine as a filed in academia.

    This is not a small issue to consider Dave Ketter Just think about the global effect on Pentecostals worldwide. Reach to all SPS members talking in this group to offer words of wisdom and appropriate action. Daniel Rushing <— the force is strong with this one…

    With over 20 politically loaded topics that I just counted in the program (there is probably many more) it is still quite surprising SPS dos not have political theology yet. Wonder why? sps-usa.org

    8. Boundaries are not Borders – A Narrative Exploration of Immigration

    10. Human Right Versus Human Rights

    11. Keynote Address: “Breaking Borders & Boundaries Through Technology in a Digital Age,”

    12. Are some borders necessary to the establishment of the kingdom of God? If so, what are they?

    13. Are there borders which should separate Christians from people of other faiths?

    14. Constructing Borders of Legitimacy and the Assimilation of Ethnics

      It’s worth pointing out that many of these papers listed are actually WTS (Wesleyan Theological Society). SPS has some. But not to the degree that WTS has this year.

      That said, there’s a process for setting up an interest group and anyone can engage that. If it garners interest among conference attendees, it will be added. The President said as much on another interest group possibility yesterday.

      True for the LGBT papers too, hence WTS theme posted @ the start of the list Still a political theology group seems to be missing for both parties in this joint meeting
