Zeitschrift für die Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft
The Zeitschrift für die Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft (ZATW/ZAW) is an academic German journal established in 1881. It is concerned with theological, linguistic and historical criticism of the Hebrew Bible. Formerly, it represented a strictly Protestant point of view on the Old Testament. At the present time, it is more ecumenical, also representing Catholic and Jewish points of view.

It is edited two times per year in both a printed version and an internet version (ISSN 1613-0103). The majority of articles are written in German, but some of them are written in English and French.
A companion to the ZAW journal is the Zeitschrift für die Neutestamentliche Wissenschaft (ZNW).
