Journal of the Kulliyyah (Faculty) of Economics and Management Sciences
The IIUM Journal of Economics and Management (JEM) is an internationally refereed journal published twice yearly by the Kulliyyah of Economics and Management Sciences, International Islamic University, Malaysia. In line with the objectives of the Kulliyyah and the University, the Journal is dedicated to the development, promotion and understanding of Islamic Economics in its widest sense, including issues related to management and accounting, in order to keep scholars and relevant institutions informed on research in the field of Islamic Economics.
Based on the Islamic worldview concerning God, man, nature and the concept and purpose of religion, this Journal promotes the idea that economic activity cannot, but be a part of al-din, and must be guided and developed within the twin epistemological foundations of revelation and reason. In the Islamic worldview, the former portrays the ultimate foundation of tawhid , while the latter acknowledges the intellect of man irrespective of religion or color. While acknowledging the great strides in conventional economics, the Journal is committed to the idea that ultimate solutions to human problems cannot be sought without reference to revelation and the Divine.
Within this framework, the Journal focuses on theoretical, applied, methodological and interdisciplinary works dealing with historical or contemporary economic issues.
The editorial board welcomes original submission in the areas of Economics (including relevant fiqh deliberations), Management and Accounting to cover historical and case studies, as well as methodological, conceptual, theoretical, analytical and applied issues. Apart from discussions from the Islamic perspective, articles can also be of the conventional sense, preferably pertaining to Muslim countries for case studies. The Editorial Board also welcomes book and article reviews of materials which are originally written in languages other than English.
