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 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 Style Sheet.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.

Author Guidelines

The Journal of the International Qur’anic Studies Association welcomes submissions in English or Arabic. Submissions should be uploaded electronically, in both Microsoft Word and PDF formats, to http://lockwoodonlinejournals.com/index.php/jiqsa/about/submissions. Please ensure that the documents you upload are anonymized for peer review.

As a rule of thumb, articles should be between 10,000 and 15,000 words including 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 Qur'an, 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.
