purpose of the Journal of Muslim Culture is to serve as a critical
intellectual resource for the contemporary aspects of the Muslim World. It is also intended to serve as a virtual part of a think tank for the Great Muslim Nation.
A litmus test for an article published in the Journal is to ask how does the article help the Muslim World of today? The helpfulness criterion shall explicitly address how the research findings are helpful for today’s Muslim World, and what percentage of the Muslim population potentially can benefit from the findings. The research findings shall prove their helpfulness in at least one of the following areas, with focus on the benefit to the Muslim World.
Articles shall have a positive approach to explicitly benefit the Muslim World; critical articles are acceptable when their benefit is manifest. Focus will be on the Muslim majority societies in today’s world; studies on the Muslim minority societies shall manifest their benefit to that minority. Given a topic, the scholarship demonstrated in the articles shall be among the very best in the world.
This journal is necessary because no journal currently exists with these objectives. Initially the journal will be biannual and online.
