Editorial Policy

The ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance (Journal) is managed by the Editorial Committee comprising ISRA Researchers.

Each article submitted for consideration of publication in the Journal, whether academic or from a practitioner, is first reviewed by the Editorial Committee.

If the Editorial Committee deems the article suitable for publication, it is sent for blind review to two suitably qualified external reviewers. The reviewers are given three weeks to review the articles, and the comments received are forwarded to the author(s) to act upon. The reviewers have a choice to accept the article as it is, reject it outright or require amendments to be made. Based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the Editor-in-Chief makes the final decision whether the paper should be published as it is, revised or rejected.

Each article which has been accepted for publication is also sent for English editing to ensure the highest standards in the use of the English language.

The Editorial Committee ensures that only original research works, which have not been already published in other journals, are published in the ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance.
