Public scholarship, informed readers
Any instructor of courses dealing with history of Islamic thought and societies and current events happening in Arab- and Muslim-majority countries would know the challenge of helping students unlearn biased, stereotypical ideas before starting to teach them factual knowledge. That raises the need for educating the public about critical issues related to such topics, events, and ideas. This platform is created to allow for public-ally engaged scholarship on Islamic thought, ideas, and events from people who are trained to use rigor and reason.
The standard for publishing with Islamic Societies Review (ISSN 2372-0379) is less than that of a peer-reviewed journal and more than that of trade magazine. It is selective: only academicians who are trained or being trained in academia can write for ISR. This platform is designed to facilitate outreach service by publically engaged scholars (and future scholars) to speak on issues of significant public interest.
To be published by Islamic Societies Review you must be currently employed as a researcher or academic with a college or research institution with research and teaching interests focusing on Islamic and Southwest Asia and North Africa studies. PhD and MA candidates under supervision by an academic can write for ISR.
Islamic Societies Review provides safe and secure space for authors and readers to engage with critical issues related to Islamic thought, institutions, and societies.
