The International Journal for Arab Studies is an electronic journal introduced by the Society of Arab & Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter (UK). We strive to publish outstanding and unique research produced by young academics from around the world. Our eJournal will publish original, previously unpublished, work in both Arabic and English. Through our website www.ijasjournal.com we hope to expand our readership and access to the thousands of researchers with interest in the Arab World. We aim to engage an ongoing debate through our journal on issues shaping the Arab World today.
Our journal will be published three times a year. Our first issue, due out in April 2010, under the theme “Arab Global Perspectives: Peripheries and Regionalism in International Relations” will establish both a broad audience and broad spectrum of contributors. We believe this theme will allow academics across disciplines the opportunity to discuss with our audience history and current affairs of Arab societies in their relations with the international community in areas of commerce, politics, culture, and conflict resolution to name a few. IJAS also welcomes Book Reviews related to the quarterly theme. Our deadline for submissions for this first issue will be 5 January 2010. Please submit your manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org. Electronic submission is the only format accepted by IJAS.
The second theme for our 2010 publication will be “Regional Security in an Interdependent Environment”. This issue will aim to discuss energy security, transnational security cooperation, emerging threats, role of regional and international organizations in conflict resolution, water resources, security of maritime lanes, weapons proliferation in the region, and economic ties in the region. Our deadline for submissions for this issue will be 5 April 2010.
