Journal of Arabic and Islamic Studies / Revue d'études arabes et islamiques
Originally founded by Evariste Lévi-Provençal in 1954 as an organ for French arabists, Arabica has now become a multidisciplinary academic journal, with an international editorial board representing various fields of research. It is dedicated to the study of the Arab world's classical and contemporary literatures, languages, history, thought and civilization. From a wider perspective, Arabica is open to the general fields of Islamicate studies and intercultural relations between Arab societies and the other cultural areas throughout history. It actively endeavors to participate in the development of new scholarly approaches and problematics. In addition to original research articles in English and French (preferably), Arabica also publishes 'notes and documents', book reviews, and occasionally academic debates in its 'methods and debates' section. Special issues may deal with a specific theme, or publish the proceedings of a conference.

Fondée en 1954 par Évariste Lévi-Provençal en tant qu’organe des arabisants français, Arabica est aujourd’hui une revue scientifique pluridisciplinaire, avec comité de lecture international représentant les divers domaines de recherche. Consacrée aux langues, littératures, histoires, systèmes de pensée et civilisations du monde arabophone aussi bien classique que contemporain, elle est aussi ouverte au domaine général de l’Islam et à l’étude des relations entre cultures arabes et autres cultures au cours de l’histoire. Arabica participe activement au renouvellement des approches et des problématiques dans le champ des études arabes et islamiques. Elle publie, prioritairement en français ou en anglais, en plus d’articles de recherche originaux, des « notes et documents », un « bulletin critique » et, occasionnellement, elle ouvre une rubrique intitulée « méthodes et débats ». Des numéros spéciaux peuvent être consacrés à un ensemble de contributions traitant d’un domaine particulier ou reprenant des actes de colloques.

Emotions: History, Culture, Society (EHCS) is dedicated to understanding the emotions as culturally and temporally-situated phenomena, and to exploring the role of emotion in shaping human experience and action by individuals, groups, societies and cultures.

EHCS welcomes theoretically-informed work from a range of historical, cultural and social domains. The journal aims to illuminate (1) the ways emotion is conceptualized and understood in different temporal or cultural settings, from antiquity to the present, and across the globe; (2) the impact of emotion on human action and in processes of change; and (3) the influence of emotional legacies from the past on current social, cultural and political practices.

EHCS is interested in multidisciplinary approaches (both qualitative and quantitative), from history, art, literature, languages, music, politics, sociology, cognitive sciences, cultural studies, environmental humanities, religious studies, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, and related disciplines. The journal also invites papers that interrogate the methodological and critical problems of exploring emotions in historical, cultural and social contexts, and the relation between past and present in the study of feelings, passions, sentiments, emotions and affects. Finally, the journal accepts theoretically-informed and reflective scholarship that explores how scholars access, uncover, construct and engage with emotions in their own scholarly practice.

Following an initial review process by the editors, EHCS sends acceptable submissions to two expert independent readers outside the author’s home institution, employing a double-blind review procedure.

EHCS is published on behalf of the Society for the History of Emotions.

The Journal of Abbasid Studies (JAS), published by Brill, the Netherlands, is a platform to discuss the political, cultural, social, economic, religious and intellectual life of the Abbasid Caliphate. The journal’s time span, from c. 700 – c. 1250 A.D., is demarcated by the formative period of early Islam on the one end and the invasion of the Mongols on the other. Coverage of the Fatimid Caliphate and al-Andalus, for instance, is restricted to their relations with the Abbasids.

JAS brings scholars together who work on the classical Islamic world and who are active in different disciplines which only rarely “talk” to one another — in this way the Journal hopes to achieve a holistic contemplation of the Abbasid era.

JAS is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research and review articles in English as well as Arabic editions with English translations of short texts. Alongside two issues per year, monographs and/or collected volumes will occasionally be published as supplements to the journal.

The editors of JAS invite submissions from established and early career scholars. For more information, please email Dr. Monique Bernards at JAS@abbasidstudies.org.

The Journal of Digital Islamicate Research (JDIR) is a peer-reviewed journal covering the field of Middle Eastern and Islamicate Digital Humanities (DH). It aspires to adjust the computational, visualization and big data methods for the exploration of contemporary and historical cultures (also known as Cultural Analytics, CA) to the emerging field of Middle Eastern and Islamic Digital Humanities, and apply these methods to it. This would enhance the distant and close readings of massive amounts of cultural data (written material, as well as visuals and audio) in Middle Eastern languages in order to derive culturally-relevant insights from it. The Journal also aims to promote the study of Arabic-language and other Arabic-script DH work (e.g., Persian, Ottoman, Urdu), and non-Muslim DH in Islamicate lands (e.g. the Geniza researchers that are moving into DH), in addition to Islamicate materials that are digital-born or digitally-reformatted. This will bring forth innovative tools and develop new technical research methods for a refreshing analysis of Middle Eastern and Islamic languages, literatures, cultures, and history in a computer-supported way. The Journal is a leading initiative in the Digital Humanities of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies that provides an online platform for the cross fertilization of different academic traditions, fields, and disciplines.

Journal for African Culture and Society
Matatu is a peer-reviewed journal on African literatures and societies dedicated to interdisciplinary dialogue between literary and cultural studies, historiography, the social sciences and cultural anthropology.
Matatu is animated by a lively interest in African culture and literature (including the Afro-Caribbean) that moves beyond worn-out clichés of “cultural authenticity” and “national liberation” towards critical exploration of African modernities. The East African public transport vehicle from which Matatu takes its name is both a component and a symbol of these modernities: based on “Western” (these days usually "Asian") technology, it is a vigorously African institution; it is usually regarded with some anxiety by those travelling in it, but is often enough the only means of transport available; it creates temporary communicative communities and provides a transient site for the exchange of news, storytelling, and political debate.
Matatu is firmly committed to supporting democratic change in Africa, to providing a forum for interchanges between African and European critical debates, to overcoming notions of absolute cultural, ethnic, or religious alterity, and to promoting transnational discussion on the future of African societies in a wider world.

Matatu was published as book series until the end of 2015. All back volumes are still available in print.
