The Journal of the International Qur’anic Studies Association (JIQSA) is a peer-reviewed annual journal published by Lockwood Press on behalf of the International Qur’anic Studies Association, a nonprofit learned society for scholars of the Qur’an. JIQSA welcomes article submissions that explore the Qur’an’s origins in the religious, cultural, social, and political contexts of Late Antiquity; its connections to various literary precursors, especially the scriptural and parascriptural traditions of older religious communities; the historical reception of the Qur’an in the West; the hermeneutics and methodology of qur’anic exegesis and translation (both traditional and modern); the transmission and evolution of the textus receptus; Qur’an manuscripts and material culture; and the application of various literary and philological modes of investigation into qur’anic style, compositional structure, and rhetoric.
The Journal of the International Qur’anic Studies Association (JIQSA) is a peer-reviewed annual journal devoted to the scholarly study of the Qur’an. Our goals are
to publish scholarship of high technical quality on the Qur’an, discussing its historical context, its relationship to other religious text traditions, and its literary, material, and cultural reception;
cultivate Qur’anic Studies as a growing field with a distinctive identity and focus, while acknowledging relevant linkages to the study of the Bible as well as the Islamic tradition, including tafsir;
facilitate crucial conversations about the state of the field in Qur’anic Studies and the future of the discipline; connect diverse scholarly communities from around the world on issues of common concern in the study of the Qur’an.
