Journal of Ecumenical Studies: J.E.S was founded by Arlene and Leonard Swidler in 1964 as the first peer-reviewed journal in the field of interreligious dialogue. Born out of the ecumenical spirit of Vatican II, J.E.S. began with an emphasis on dialogue among diverse Christian traditions. Its focus quickly broadened to Christian-Jewish dialogue and soon thereafter to interchange among a wide array of religious traditions. After 45 years, J.E.S. continues as the premier publisher of scholarly articles in the field of dialogue across lines of religious difference. From the 1960’s until today, J.E.S. has helped to create and build an international forum for interreligious scholarship. Together with the outreach work of the Dialogue Institute, it continues to support, stimulate, and broaden the community of scholars and activists engaged in interreligious work throughout the world.
The Journal of Shia Islamic Studies: The Journal of Shia Islamic Studies (JSIS) is a refereed academic journal published by ICAS Press for the Islamic College, London, UK.

Such articles will cover the most debate-worthy issues in the aforementioned fields in the hope of ultimately contributing to the resolution of various theoretical, methodological, and practical dilemnas encountered in Shi’a Islamic Studies. Furthermore, JSIS endeavors to cover modern and current issues relevant to Shi’ism and its overall study.

In addition, AJISS includes research notes, short opinion pieces, insightful reviews of published books of interest to our subscribers, as well as conference reports and research notes and abstracts of doctoral theses.
The Journal of Pan African Studies: The Journal of Pan African Studies is a trans-disciplinary peer reviewed scholarly journal devoted to the intellectual synthesis of research, scholarship and critical thought on the African experience. Since our inception in 1987, we have provided an international forum for diverse scholars to advance a host of perspectives and theoretical paradigms relevant to the social, political, economic and cultural issues that impact the African world community. Thus, the goal of the journal is to build a transnational community of scholars, theorists and practitioners who can ask questions and pose solutions to contemporary and historical issues, based upon an affirmative African centered logic and discourse of liberation.
The International Journal of the Humanities: The International Journal of the Humanities provides a space for dialogue and publication of new knowledge which builds on the past traditions of the humanities whilst setting a renewed agenda for their future. The Humanities is a domain of learning, reflection and action which is a place of dialogue between and across epistemologies, perspectives and content areas. It is in these unsettling places that the humanities might be able to unburden modern knowledge systems of their restrictive narrowness.
Discussions in the International Journal of the Humanities range from the broad and speculative to the microcosmic and empirical. Its over-riding concern, however, is to redefine the human and mount a case for the humanities. At a time when the dominant rationalisms are running a course that often seems to be drawing humanity towards ends that seem often less than satisfactory, this journal reopens the question of the human—for highly pragmatic as well as redemptory reasons.
The journal is relevant for academics across the whole range of humanities disciplines, research students, educators—school, university and further education—anyone with an interest in, and concern for the humanities.
The International Journal of the Humanities is fully peer-reviewed with a rigorous refereeing process to ensure a high standard of quality. The editors and advisory board comprise leading scholars in the humanities field.
Intercultural Communication Studies: Intercultural Communication Studies (ICS), the journal sponsored by International Association for Intercultural Communication Studies (IAICS), began in 1991 with the goal of publishing research which is related to the study of intercultural communication and which comes from the many areas involved in the field.

Progress reports on current research, discussion papers on specific problems in the field, and book reviews are also included. Articles that look across disciplinary boundaries are encouraged.
