The quarterly journal of Islam and the Contemporary World is an open access, double-blind peer-reviewed journal established in 2022 by Dar Al-Hikma (a non-profit, non-governmental, online higher education institute, founded in Qom under the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research and Technology). It publishes articles related to contemporary human issues from the Islamic perspective. Therefore, articles in the fields of environmental ethics, peace and coexistence of religions, mental health, the meaning of life, social freedoms, women and family studies, and also topics related to gender, human rights, theism and atheism, etc. are welcome. The quarterly journal of Islam and the Contemporary World accepts four kinds of articles: original research articles, short articles, book reviews, and Viewpoint (as well as Perspective and Opinion) articles.
The journal seeks to promote lively discussions and debates for established academics and the wider community, by publishing articles that avoid unnecessary jargon without sacrificing academic rigor. It encourages contributions from newer members of the Islamic studies community. We do not charge any publication fee from the authors for the papers to be published in the journal.
