Instructions to Authors

The Editor-in-chief of the Journal invites the submission of original scholarly contributions on any aspect of Islamicjerusalem from the rise of Islam to present day.

1. Submission of Manuscripts
Contributions and editorial correspondence should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Islamicjerusalem Studies, 124 Blackness Road, Dundee, DD1 5PE, UK. Manuscripts in both Arabic and English are welcome and should be between 5,000 - 8,000 words in length. Three copies should be submitted, typed double space, on one side of the paper only with margins of at least one inch (2.5 cm), typed on only one side of the page. Authors should not submit manuscripts that are under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors should reserve one full copy of their manuscript.

The Journal publishes articles, documentations, reports, review articles and book reviews. Books sent for review in the Journal will be reviewed or listed there; those not reviewed cannot be returned. The journal also provides information, announcements and reports on current and forthcoming events relevant to Islamicjerusalem.

2. Preparation of Manuscript
A title page should be attached which includes the title of the article, the author's name(s), and the author's affiliation (including mailing and e-mail addresses). The manuscript itself should contain the title of the article, but not the author's name (to facilitate anonymous peer review). Manuscripts pages should be numbered consecutively, spelling, capitalization and punctuation must be consistent within each article. All manuscripts should meet the standard requirements of the International Journal of Middle Eastern Studies. An abstract of 100-150 words should be included on a separate sheet, along with a short note of biographical details, and a list of up to six key words for indexing. Once an editorial decision has been made to proceed with publication, the author will need to supply the manuscript in electronic form (preferably formatted), for example on disk or by e-mail.

3. Proofs
The publishers and editors reserve the right to copyedit and proof read all article accepted for publication. Copyedited manuscripts will be sent to authors. JIS reserves the right to change the transliteration of all historical names, titles, and non-English terminology to bring them into conformity with its own style.

4. References
All references should be indicated within the text, giving the authorís name, the date of publication, and the page reference: e.g. (Said 1978:33). If a numbered note is necessary, it should not be used for citation, and all notes should be typed together on a separate sheet- clearly numbered- at the end of the text, before the bibliography.

5. Copyright
Manuscripts submitted will be expected to contain original work and should not have been published in an abridged or other form elsewhere. Acceptance of a paper will imply assignment of copyright by its author to Al-Maktoum Institute Academic Press, but the author will be free to use his material in subsequent publication written or edited by the author provided that acknowledgment is made of Journal of Islamicjerusalem Studies as the place of original publication.

6. Offprint
A copy of the journal will be sent by post to all corresponding authors after publication. Additional copies of the journal can be purchased at a preferential rate. Twenty offprints of each article and two copies of book reviews will be available free of charge to the author. Authors may buy further offprints at reasonable prices.
