Call for Papers for the “Journal of Education in Muslim Societies – JEMS”
The Journal of Education in Muslim Societies (JEMS ), is a bi-annual, double-blind peer-reviewed journal published by Indiana University Press in partnership with the International Institute of Islamic Thought’s “Advancing Education in Muslim Societies (AEMS)” project.
JEMS seeks original academic research examining the broad scope of education in Muslim societies. Our examination of education is very broad and includes but is not limited to religious education, PreK-12, higher education, parenting and youth development. This peer-reviewed academic journal will publish research related to educational policy, curriculum, pedagogy, governance and leadership; and assessment and evaluation. While the journal encourages scholarship in the areas of educational equity, context of education, role of philanthropy in education and the philosophical, epistemological and theoretical underpinnings, we are open to scholarship that advances the broad focus of the journal. We seek to draw articles by researchers from across disciplines (History, Political Science, Religious Studies, Sociology, Public Affairs, Non-profit Management, Business, Philanthropy etc.) and practitioners throughout the world working in this emerging field.
Along with standard research papers (8000 words) and book reviews (1500 words), JEMS also welcomes commentaries (short articles commenting in a significant way on, or supplementing arguments and evidence in, a research article or a review article) of up to 2500 words.
