Guidelines for Contributors to Research Notes

The Research Notes section provides a means for educational researchers to communicate with one another about their research-in-progress. Because NIZHAM: Jurnal Studi Keislaman is so widely indexed nationally and internationally, it is effective in supporting such exchanges. The Research Notes are also a useful means for reporting on smaller research projects that have one or two findings of particular interest but do not warrant full-article treatment.

The Note should report briefly on the author's/authors' research-in-progress or recently completed research and should feature work that has not been reported elsewhere in journal publications. This current work should be situated, briefly, in the context of other pertinent scholarship, including the author's or authors' related research. The focus of the Note could be either a specific study or an overview of an ongoing line of inquiry where fuller reporting of results will not occur in print for some time.

The maximum length for a Research Note is 1,000 words, excluding references and one or two tables or graphs. To encourage communication between researchers, authors of Research Notes are asked to provide contact information including a one-line biography, full mailing address, E-mail, fax, and/or telephone numbers for publication with each Note. This biography and contact information should be included in the document file submitted and Not abstract is required.

Submissions to Research Notes will be reviewed for readability, rationale, clarity, logic, organization, length, and adherence to all NIZHAM: Jurnal Studi Keislaman  guidelines. Any submission that is judged to meet these criteria will be published as soon as possible. Any submission that is judged to require revisions according to the criteria outlined will not be published, and revisions will not be invited as the Notes must be current if they are to serve the purposes identified.
