Contributing to the Society Journal

Notes for Authors

The Society's Journal is published bi-annually. Contributions are greatly welcomed, and it will facilitate review and publication of a paper if it is submitted in accordance with the following notes:


The Journal of the Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi Society publishes papers relating to the study of the works and ideals of Ibn 'Arabi and his followers. All submissions should be in English.


Manuscripts for consideration should be submitted, preferably by e-mail to for the attention of the Editor, or posted to: JMIAS Editor, P.O. Box 892, Oxford OX2 7XL, UK. If a manuscript is accepted, the contributor must provide an electronic version and an exactly matching copy on paper.

Essays should not generally exceed 7,000 words, and shorter contributions are welcome. Translations which are longer may be published wholly or in successive editions, at the discretion of the editor. The editor reserves the right to reject those submissions not meeting the Journal's standards or other requirements. It is important that manuscripts are submitted in their final form so that proofs will only require correction of typographical errors. Arabic, Turkish and Persian transliteration should conform with normal English practice; further details can be supplied if required.


Authors will be sent a pdf of their article prior to publication. To avoid delays, these should be checked immediately for typographical errors and returned to the Production Editor as soon as possible. Any substantial changes at this stage may be rejected.

Complimentary Copies

Each contributor will receive a pdf of the final version of their article and two complimentary copies of the Journal in which it appears.
