Open Access Journal: Al-ʿUṣūr al-Wusṭā: The Journal of Middle East Medievalists

ISSN: 1068-1051
Al-ʿUsur al-Wusta

A peer-reviewed, open access journal since 2015, Al-ʿUṣūr al-Wusṭā: The Journal of Middle East Medievalists defines the medieval Middle East expansively to include all geographies with prominent Muslim political, religious, or social presences between the rough parameters of 500-1500 CE. We seek previously unpublished articles featuring original research and analysis, including those that push the boundaries of the medieval Middle East as defined above. We are open to scholarship from any discipline or interdisciplinary formation and are committed to balancing pieces addressing new or underrepresented areas of inquiry with those contributing to more well-established fields.

We publish research articles on a rolling basis, as they complete the review and production process, and we welcome submissions at any time. In addition, we publish short critical editions and translations, essays on pedagogy, conference reports, and book reviews. Full issues of al-ʿUṣūr al-Wusṭā are released toward the end of each calendar year, usually in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Middle East Studies Association. 

The open access publication of al-ʿUṣūr al-Wusṭā is made possible by Middle East Medievalists (MEM), an international, non-profit association of scholars. To support the journal, please consider joining MEM or renewing your MEMbership today!
