Founded in 1977, Islamiyyat: The International Journal of Islamic Studies (ISSN 0126-5636) is a refereed international journal of Islamic studies; published annually in June and December by UKM Press, and can be said to be the oldest academic journal dealing with the theme in Malaysia.

The international perspective is also reflected by the journal’s trilingual approach; in Malay, English and Arabic. The published articles as well as comments, research reports, book reviews, conference papers and others are in Islamic studies as well as in other fields written from Islamic perspectives. In order to encourage academic brainstorming, we are soliciting your contributions throughout the year.

All submitted articles should report original, previously unpublished research results, experimental or theoretical, and will be peer-reviewed. Articles submitted to the journal should meet these criteria and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should follow the style of the journal and are subject to both review and editing. Islamiyyat will only accept submissions sent through e-mail to this address:

Islamiyyat is abstracted and indexed in Index Islamicus, ISC (Islamic World Science Citation Centre), ProQuest, UDLedge, MyCite, MyJurnal and UJAR (UKM Journal Article Repository).
