These include, but are not limited to, MENA-Asia relations, Islamic thought and intellectual history, intra-Muslim relations, Sufism, Islam and ethnicity, Islam and modernity, Islam and politics, Islam and the State, Islam and geopolitics, and relations between Muslims and non-Muslims across Asia.
IJIA is edited by Nassef Manabilang Adiong (University of the Philippines Diliman), Deina Abdelkader (University of Massachusetts at Lowell, USA), and Raffaele Mauriello (Allameh Tabataba’i University, Iran).

The international book series on Islam in Southeast Asia (Palgrave Macmillan) is edited by Nassef Manabilang Adiong (University of the Philippines Diliman), Imtiyaz Yusuf (College of Religious Studies, Mahidol University), Lily Zubaidah Rahim (Department of Government and International Relations, School of Social and Political Sciences, The University of Sydney), Maznah Mohamad (Department of Malay Studies, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, National University of Singapore), and Nadirsyah Hosen (Faculty of Law, Monash University).
The series publishes academic and policy research on historical and contemporary Muslim communities, both in the region and in the diaspora, and on all aspects of Islam in Southeast Asia. It concentrates on theoretical, methodological, empirical, religious, spiritual, and critical studies of Islam, including mundane praxes and lived Islam. We encourage interdisciplinarity and eclectic contributions from scholars and practitioners (e.g. preachers, spiritual/religious leaders, and policy makers) to facilitate a holistic approach towards the study of Islam. The series particularly welcome topics on: 1) Islam and Politics 2) Islam & Ethnicity; 3) Islam and Modernity; 4) MENA Influences in Southeast Asia; 5) pre-Modern and Contemporary Islamic Thought; 6) Sunni and Shia Relations; 7) Islamic Studies and Area Studies; 8) Canonical and Periphery Islam; and 9) Relations between Muslims and non-Muslims across the region. Contributions are welcome from across fields and disciplines including politics, international relations, sociology, humanities, the arts, anthropology, comparative religion, cultural studies, economics, history, law (jurisprudence), philosophy, mysticism (Sufism), and theology. The series will include original monographs, Palgrave Pivots, edited volumes/collections, and handbooks.
The Islam in the Philippines series (DLSU Publishing House) publishes long and short research monographs, policy-oriented books, handbooks, and collections of multidisciplinary studies and analyses on historical and contemporary Islam and Muslims in the Philippines, including Muslim responses and experiences to colonial modernities. The series is in collaboration with Palgrave Macmillan on a project by project basis only.
