Participatio: The Journal of the Thomas F. Torrance Theological Fellowship is published as an annual, peer-reviewed, online journal. Participatio is the journal of the Thomas F. Torrance Theological Fellowship, a research fellowship within the Christian Church and tradition based on the theology of Thomas F. Torrance. The journal’s mission is two-fold: to apprehend the significance of Torrance’s work and to advance his evangelical and scientific theology for the benefit of the Church, academy, and society.

Researchers interested in engaging the theology of T. F. Torrance may submit manuscripts in accordance with the policies specified below. Contributions from diverse disciplines and perspectives are encouraged to explore the wide-ranging significance of Torrance's work. Occasional miscellaneous issues include paper presentations and responses from the annual conference, book reviews, etc.
