Founded in 2012, the International Journal of Islamic Architecture (IJIA) publishes peer-reviewed articles on the urban design, architecture and landscape architecture of the historic Islamic world, encompassing the Middle East and parts of Africa and Asia, but also the more recent geographies of Islam in its global dimensions. IJIA’s main emphasis is on the detailed analysis of the historical, theoretical, and practical aspects of architecture, and the audience of the journal includes both practitioners and scholars. IJIA is indexed in all major scientific databases, such as the Arts & Humanities Citation Index (AHCI), EBSCO, and Scopus, and is the winner of the Mohamed Makiya Prize for Architecture 2019. The journal publishes two issues per year.
The editorial team of the IJIA is seeking a visionary and energetic scholar to join us as a new Assistant Editor in August 2022. This three-year voluntary position will provide an opportunity for the editor to work with an excellent, collaborative, and vibrant team of scholars from various disciplines and research interests. Aside from regular editorial duties, such as reviewing new submissions and preparing them for publication based on IJIA guidelines, the new Assistant Editor will contribute to the preparation of special issues, host a featured Dialogues session, and promote the journal in academic venues. The IJIA editorial team will offer rigorous training for the new team member.
While no previous editorial experience is required, some work in academic writing and publishing would be a plus. We welcome junior scholars and doctoral candidates.
In order to apply, please submit a CV along with a brief statement regarding your experience and interest in joining the IJIA team to email@example.com.
