Webzine Guidelines

The purpose of the webazine is:

  • to influence understanding and practice on issues particularly relevant to women around issues of missiology and Islam
  • to provide a venue for publishing articles on women, missiology & Islam
  • to give women’s voices a space that is harder to access in other journals.

We seek to make it useful for scholars, and the same time accessible for practitioners.

 

Contributions could be in the form of:

a).  A scholarly article, of between 5-7 thousand words.

b). A reflection, of between 2-3 thousand words.   A reflection should:

  1. Focus on the theme
  2. Describe a personal experience in relation to the theme or outline a problem in life or ministry the writer is personally challenged by
  3. Reflect on that experience or problem in relation to the their own life or ministry practice
  4. Raise questions relating to their experience or problem about how it could affect missionary practice or Christian life in Muslim contexts (that scholars could seek to address in later issues)
  5. Comment on possible implications for others

 

Some stylistic guidelines:
  • 12-point Times New Roman in text (double spaced) & 10-point in footnotes (single spaced)
  • 1 inch margins all the way around
  • Align text left margin (do not justify)
  • Bold, align left margin, section titles (do not resort to second level subsection titles if at all possible)
