The Journal of Islamic Faith and Practice is an annual double-blind peer-reviewed online academic and interdisciplinary journal published by Indiana University and sponsored by The Islamic Seminary of America Inc. The Journal invites colleagues to submit articles for publication that combine intellectual rigor with community engagement. The Journal aims to provide a platform for scholars, students, and researchers to exchange their latest findings and to foster dialogue among them and community leaders regarding the Islamic faith and its practice in America. To this end, successful proposals will reflect theoretical and methodological sophistication and engagement with existing scholarship, while also being accessible to non-specialists.
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
