Al-Jami'ah: Journal of Islamic Studies
Description: Al-Jamiah, a journal of Islamic Studies published by the
State Institute of Islamic Studies (which has become the State Islamic
University Sunan Kalijaga) Yogyakarta since 1962, can be said as the
oldest academic journal dealing with the theme in South East Asia.
The subject covers textual and fieldwork studies with various
perspectives of law, philosophy, mysticism, history, art, theology,
and many more. In the beginning the journal only served as a scholarly
forum for the lecturers and professors at the State Institute of
Islamic Studies. However, due to the later development with a broader
readership, the journal has successfully invited scholars and
researchers outside the Institute to contribute.
Thus, Indonesian and non-Indonesian scholars have enriched the studies
published in the journal. Although not from the beginning Al-Jamiah
presents highly qualified scholarly articles, improvement—in terms
format, style, and academic quality—never ceases. Now with articles
written in Arabic and English and with the fair procedure of
peer-review, Al-Jamiah continues publishing researches and studies
pertinent to Islamic studies with various dimensions and approaches.
Al-Jamiah, published twice a year, always places Islam and Muslim in
the central focus of academic inquiry and invites any comprehensive
observation of Islam as a theological belief and a system of society
and Muslims as those who practice the religion with their many facets.
This journal, serving as a forum for the study of Islam in Indonesia
and other parts of the world within its local and challenging global
context, supports focused studies of particular theme and
interdisciplinary studies. Al-Jamiah has become a medium of diffusion
and exchange of ideas and research findings, so much so that
researchers, writers, and readers from various traditions of learning
have interacted in the scholarly manner.
