To the scholars and students of Hadith and Sira:
We are please to announce the launch of the Journal of Hadīth and Sīra Studies. Hadīth and Sīra Studies is a peer-reviewed academic journal. It is concerned with all aspects of classical and contemporary hadīth and sīra research. It welcomes multidisciplinary contributions to hadīth and sīra studies especially from literature, history, sociology, psychology, and educational sciences as well as other branches of Islamic studies. It gives special emphasis to international perspectives, and values the works of authors from diverse intellectual traditions.
Hadīth and Sīra Studies recognizes the rigorous intellectual standards set by Western academia and aims to adhere to them from its first issue as part of its long-term goal to become a leading international publication. In line with its interdisciplinary perspective, Hadīth and Sīra Studies welcomes contributions from diverse fields of research.
How primary Islamic sources have been understood and interpreted throughout history shapes the way they are understood by the present generation. It is therefore necessary to both convey the Islamic tradition through a re-evaluation and analysis of the literature written during previous centuries, and to make it relevant to contemporary problems. The critical and philosophical ideas voiced since the 18th century in both the East and West cannot be ignored and must be engaged with by hadīth and sīra studies. Classical Islamic texts should be reread and at the same time rediscovered in light of these intellectual developments. In tackling these significant issues, the importance of adopting both an international and interdisciplinary approach becomes clear. At this current time, Hadīth and Sīra Studies intends to publish articles in Arabic, English, German and French in addition to Turkish.
We welcome your academic contributions addressing the separate or common issues of hadīth and sīra studies, as well as those connecting them to relevant disciplines, for our first issue which will be published in October 2015.
