The volume on the Megilloth further contains a general introduction that provides a brief overview of the various manuscripts used and a discussion of the manner in which they are used in the BHQ. The volumes read right to left. As a result, the English text of the general introduction, as well as that of the ensuing tables and lists, reads left to right.

BHQ is the new (fifth) edition of the Biblia Hebraica. It is being published in parts (fascicles) by the German Bible Society.
"For the scholar trained in text criticism. . . the approach of BHQ is an advantage as it places the text-critical judgments in the background, so that scholars can more readily come to their own judgments. . . . BHQ is a text critic's paradise. . . an outstanding textual resource for the next generation."
