Journal of International Law and Islamic Law
The Journal of International law and Islamic Law (formerly the Journal of Islamic State practices in International Law), covers broadly international law issues which may concern Muslim countries or any aspect of Islamic law. It also covers Islamic law matters relating to modern international law. As it has been the practice of the journal, since its establishment in 2005, it has a specific interest in issues relating to the practice of Muslim states in international law.
The journal would like to broaden its coverage to issues of international law relating to the Middle East, Central Asia, North Africa, Arab world and Muslim majority countries in general. The journal would also cover the application and relevance of Sharia (the Muslim code of conduct – including Islamic law) in non-Muslim countries with sizeable Muslim minorities.

Journal of International Law and Islamic Law is a scholarly peer-reviewed Journal published by electronicpublications.org. The aim of this Journal is to focus on issues concerning Islamic law involving Muslim Countries and Muslims in general from the perspective of International Law. In this context all state members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (formerly the Organisation of Islamic Conference) are considered as being ‘Islamic’ States. In addition to the practices of individual Islamic States, the Journal focuses on multilateral co-operation involving Islamic States. The Journal also covers legal issues which may be of general interest to the Islamic world; these issues may have arisen in ‘non-Islamic’ States or those States which are not members of the Organisation of Islamic Conference. The Journal presents coverage of important international legal issues relevant to the Islamic world, including treaty arrangements. It also reports on national and international cases involving Muslim countries and multilateral organisations.
The Journal welcomes submission of articles for consideration with a view to publication.
The normal word length for article contributions in the Journal is between 5000-8000 words.
All Journal articles are peer reviewed, and it is a requirement of submission that these articles are original and not previously published elsewhere.
The Journal also welcomes contributions for its ‘Recent Developments’ section.
