BULLETIN OF THE ROYAL INSTITUTE FOR INTER-FAITH STUDIES (BRIIFS)
Scholars are invited to contribute papers (8,000-12,000 words) for publication in upcoming issues of the Bulletin of the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies (BRIIFS), a refereed biannual academic journal that publishes articles, notices and book reviews in English and in French.
Currently in its sixth year of publication, BRIIFS is intended to provide a venue for interdisciplinary academic inquiry into all fields of the humanities and social sciences that bear on cultural or civilizational interaction, such as anthropology, archaeology, fine arts, history, literature, politics and sociology, and to situate culture contact in a global context. The scope of articles submitted to the journal need not, therefore, be confined to the Middle East or to any fixed geographical region. Since it is an interdisciplinary journal, BRIIFS only publishes technical or highly specialized material in its special conference issues. (The tables of contents of all issues of BRIIFS may be viewed at .)
Originally a centre for the study of Muslim and Christian traditions in the Arab world, the Royal Institute has since widened its scope to become a clearing house for knowledge and ideas relating to culture contact in the broadest sense.
Papers may be sent to the editors by e-mail attachment at the e-mail address provided below. A hard copy may also be sent by post. Each paper should be accompanied by an abstract (max. 225 words) and a cover letter that includes a brief biography. After being screened by the editors, papers will be anonymously reviewed by two referees and then returned to the authors for revision, if necessary, prior to acceptance/publication. Please note that all papers will be copy-edited after this point to conform to BRIIFS style.
Windows users should save attachments as Word 6.0/95; Macintosh users should save attachments as Word 5.1 for Mac. Files may also be submitted in rich text format (rtf).
Please do not submit papers presently being considered for publication elsewhere.
