The Journal of Islamic Studies

The Journal of Islamic Studies, published for the Centre by Oxford University Press since 1990, places the study of Islam and modern societies in their global context.

Published three times a year, the Journal is a multidisciplinary publication covering all aspects of Islam and the Islamic world in the subject areas of history, geography, political science, economics, anthropology, sociology, law, literature, religion, philosophy, international relations, environmental and development issues and ethical questions related to scientific research. It aims to encourage interaction among academics from diverse traditions of learning and to enable the diffusion, exchange and discussion of their research and reflections.

"Though Islam is central to the concerns of the Journal, it is not narrowly conceived of as a body of ritual and doctrine... The articles are uniformly stimulating and scholarly".
