Focus and Scope


Islamic Studies Review (ISR) focuses on the diversity of Muslim texts and practices across the globe, with a scholarly emphasis on the discourses of decolonization and the Global South.



The ISR aims to provide a pluridisciplinary forum for the study of Islam and Muslim societies through the lens of the humanities and social sciences, particularly history, law, literature, philology, philosophy, anthropology and sociology. The ISR encourages authors to explore social thought and practices that are variously understood as Islamic, past and present, regional and transregional/global, and other possible perspectives that critically support the decolonization agenda and voices from the Global South.
