Journal of Asian Wisdom and Islamic Behavior with ISSN number: 2987-6915 is a blind-reviewed international journal that publishes authentic scientific articles relating to valuable ideas that contain findings of various local wisdom in the field of Islamic studies in Asia. The journal is aimed at promoting various local issues that correlate with the behaviors of Muslim communities and Islamic practices in Asia. This journal is, specifically, interested in high-quality qualitative research capable of finding various policies wherein Islam intersects with local beliefs, rituals, traditions, customs, and cultures. The discussions include local issues in Asia, e.g.: spirituality (Sufism), religiosity, faith, cosmological belief, social and political identities, customs, and cultures, tolerance, and Islamic moderation, as well as assorted expressions of digital religious and spiritual life, digital religion and religious authority contestation in the age of new media, but not necessarily limited to the aforementioned scope. The purpose is to facilitate all researchers and academicians throughout Asia to publish their research paper and to develop networks among scholars in Asia and the international world. We invite writers who have diverse backgrounds and are underrepresented. JAWAB, published twice a year (March and September), always places Islam as a spiritual practice and traditions of Muslim communities as local wisdom in Asia in the central focus of academic inquiry and invites any discussions as the aim and scopes. JAWAB is a member of Crossref.org since 2023, so each article has its unique DOI number.

The publication of research as scientific articles in reputable international journals, for the most part, constitutes a dissemination of science and knowledge. Accordingly, the process adheres to international journal publication standards. These standards include, among others, the blind review process, the article’s novelty and systematics, as well as other relevant aspects pertaining to academic writing.

Proficiency in and mastery of academic writing are key elements that academicians need to hone their skills and improve their performance as academic scholars. In order to meet such specific needs, JAWAB (Jogja Academic Writing and Reading Bootcamp) was rightly established.

JAWAB maintains significant concerns on training of research, academic writing, and publication of scientific work. It was pioneered by a number of lecturers in October of 2021. Nonetheless, its academic writing activities have begun since 2017.

Through its collaborations with several academicians who are focused on research and publication, JAWAB (Jogja Academic Writing and Reading Bootcamp), subsequently, initiated the establishment of a journal called JAWAB: Journal of Asian Wisdom and Islamic Behavior.

This journal is dedicated to scholars with a particular attention to local issues in Asia, which have been lacking attention thus far. By maintaining good article quality standards, the journal intends to disseminate results of qualitative research, in particular.

Furthermore, the journal also intends to serve as an arena for scientific discussions among global scholars having common interests and concerns on issues of Islam as spiritual practice and traditions of Muslim communities as local wisdom in Asia.

Journal Editorial Board members oversee the peer review process for the journal, including evaluating submissions, selecting reviewers and assessing their comments, and making editorial decisions. Together with Advisory Editorial Board Members they are involved in the development of journal policies and ethics standards and work to promote the Journal mission to provide resources, support and advice for early stage researchers in their journey from writing to publishing their scientific papers while at the same time making free public access to scientific research.
