The Creation Research Society, established to promote and fund "scientific" creation research, publishes a journal called the Creation Research Society Quarterly. It is one of the only journals (that I know of) where creationists are able or have even tried to publish their work. Prominent creationists such as Duane Gish, Henry Morris, Thomas Barnes, and Harold Slusher have all served on its board of directors at one time or another. The society and journal require that all members adhere to the following statement of belief.

Statement of Belief:
  1. The Bible is the written Word of God, and because it is inspired throughout, all its assertions are historically and scientifically true in the original autographs. To the student of nature this means that the account of origins in Genesis is a factual presentation of simple historical truths.
  2. All basic types of living things, including man, were made by direct creative acts of God during the Creation Week described in Genesis. Whatever biological changes have occurred since Creation Week have been accomplished only changes within the original created kinds.
  3. The great flood described in Genesis, commonly referred to as the Noachian Flood, was an historic event worldwide in its extent and effect.
  4. We are an organization of Christian men and women of science who accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. The account of the special creation of Adam and Eve as one man and one woman and their subsequent fall into sin is the basis for our belief in the necessity of a Savior for all mankind. Therefore, salvation can come only through accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior.

As far as I know, no mainstream scientific journal requires its authors to sign a statement of belief. One wonders why creationist journals do.
