General standards

Language Editing
International Journal of Islamic Economics requires manuscripts submitted to meet international standards for the English language to be considered for publication. Articles are normally published only in English.
For authors who would like their manuscript to receive language editing or proofing to improve the clarity of the manuscript and help highlight their research, the International Journal of Islamic Economics recommends the language-editing services provided by the internal or external partners (contact Principal of the International Journal of Islamic Economics for further information).
Note that sending your manuscript for language editing does not imply or guarantee that it will be accepted for publication by the International Journal of Islamic Economics. Editorial decisions on the scientific content of a manuscript are independent of whether it has received language editing or proofing by the partner services, or other services.

Written in English 3-5 words or groups of words, written alphabetically.
The body text is in 12 points normal Goudy Old Style. New paragraphs will be separated with a single empty line. The entire document should be single-spaced and should contain page and line numbers in order to facilitate the review process.

Your manuscript is organized by headings and subheadings.
For Original Research Articles, it is recommended to organize your manuscript in the following sections:

A. Introduction
Explaining the background, problems, and importance of research, a brief literature review that relates directly to research or previous findings that need to be developed, and ended with a paragraph on research purposes. A balance must be kept between the pure and applied aspects of the subject. The introduction is presented in the form of paragraphs of approximately 1000 words.
B. Literature Review
Literature Review, contains a study of various theories that underlie the emergence of research that contains various theoretical foundations of the variables used in this study.
C. Research Methodology
Contains the research methodology used (methods, data types, data sources, techniques data collection, data analysis techniques, measurement variables) written in the form of flowing paragraphs (not numbered). Writing formulas, equations The equations used are arranged on separate lines and are numbered sequentially in brackets (justify) and placed on the right margin parallel to that line.
D. Results and Discussion
The purpose of the Results and Discussion is to state your findings and make interpretations and/or opinions, explain the implications of your findings, and make suggestions for future research. Its main function is to answer the questions posed in the introduction, explain how the results support the answers, and how the answers fit in with existing knowledge on the topic. The Discussion is considered the heart of the paper and usually requires several writing attempts.
The discussion will always connect to the introduction by way of the research questions or hypotheses you posed and the literature you reviewed, but it does not simply repeat or rearrange the introduction; the discussion should always explain how your study has moved the reader's understanding of the research problem forward from where you left them at the end of the introduction.
To make your message clear, the discussion should be kept as short as possible while clearly and fully stating, supporting, explaining, and defending your answers and discussing other important and directly relevant issues. Care must be taken to provide commentary and not a reiteration of the results. Side issues should not be included, as these tend to obscure the message.

E. Conclusion
The conclusion is intended to help the reader understand why your research should matter to them after they have finished reading the paper. A conclusion is not merely a summary of the main topics covered or a re-statement of your research problem, but a synthesis of key points. It is important that the conclusion does not leave the questions unanswered. 

F. Bibliography
All citations in the text must be in the reference list and vice-versa. The references should only include articles that are published or accepted. Datasets that have been deposited to an online repository should be included in the reference list, including the version and unique identifier when available. For accepted but unpublished works use "in the press" instead of page numbers. Unpublished data, submitted manuscripts, or personal communications should be cited within the text only, for the article types that allow such inclusions. Personal communications should be documented by a letter of permission.
In-text citations should be called according to the surname of the first author, followed by the year. For works by 2 authors include both surnames, followed by the year. For works by more than 2 authors include only the surname of the first author, followed by et al., followed by the year. For assistance please use management reference (Mendeley or Zotero) and utilize the format of the American Psychological Association 7th Edition. If possible, please provide the retrieved link for each reference.
