Al-Manhaj is the double-blind peer reviewed academic journal published by Center for Research and Publication, Islamic University of Maldives. Al-Manhaj aims to publish high quality research that can disseminate and advance knowledge in diverse areas and fields. The journal allows submission of research articles in three language; English, Dhivehi and Arabic so as to reach both the local community and the international community.


The purpose of Al-Manhaj is to disseminate timely knowledge from a broad range of disciplines including Islamic studies and social sciences. The reason for keeping this broad spectrum is to provide a platform for the University postgraduate students and staff to publish and engage in scholarly academic discussions relevant to the local community as well as internationally. The generalist approach also aims to appeal to a wider audience with sub-disciplinary interests.


Authors must vest or license copyright in their articles (abstracts included) in AlManhaj to enable us to have full copyright protection. If authors are to use any of the materials elsewhere thereafter, permission from Al-Manhaj must be sought. The authors also must get necessary permission if they are to reproduce materials already published.


The journal will be published once a year in March, initially only in print form.


The journal will be published by the Center for Research and Publication at the Islamic University of Maldives.
