As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is double-spaced; uses 12-point Times New Roman font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.

The Journal of the International Qur’anic Studies Association welcomes submissions in English or Arabic. The journal will be published annually beginning in 2016. Submissions should be sent electronically, in both Microsoft Word and PDF formats, to jiqsa@iqsaweb.org.

As a rule of thumb, articles should be between 6,000 and 10,000 words, not counting footnotes, using 12-pt Times New Roman font double-spaced for the body and 11-pt single-spaced font for footnotes. Shorter or longer articles may be accepted for review at the discretion of the editors.

Contributions should follow the style standards established in the Style Sheet, particularly in regard to transliteration of terms, citation of the Qurʾān, and bibliographic citations. The font employed in the document should be Unicode compliant to ensure translatability of special characters and non-Roman text. Use of special formatting in the document should be avoided.
