Vol. 37 No. 1-2 (2020): AMERICAN JOURNAL of ISLAM AND SOCIETY
You will notice the new name of our journal, American Journal of Islam and Society, that has replaced the older American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences. Now in its thirty-seventh year, the journal has evolved along with the scholarly landscape and our global community of readers. The new name reflects an expansion of the journal’s scope, which has in fact already reflected in the articles it has featured for years. This change signals that social sciences and humanities are interrelated and that an Islamic engagement with one requires examining the other; we therefore wish to underscore that we welcome all scholarship that pertains to the myriad ways in which Islam and human societies interact. Furthermore, in order to optimize our resources and further improve the quality of the content, the journal will henceforth be published biannually rather than every quarter.
