JURNAL PENGURUSAN DAN PENYELIDIKAN FATWA (JFATWA), also known as The Journal of Fatwa Management and Research, engages a broad readership with its interdisciplinary approach to all vital themes related to Fatwa and Halal research. The journal examines issues that cross both academic and international frontiers, showcasing research with wide-reaching implications. Guided by a distinguished editorial board and selected peer reviewers, JFATWA is committed to fostering essential, contemporary dialogues in the fields of Fatwa and Halal studies. It eagerly invites innovative ideas and research directions in related areas.

Beginning January 1, 2022, JFATWA is published three times a year by the Institut Fatwa dan Halal (IFFAH) at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM).  The journal stands as a crucial resource for scholars, regulatory authorities, and experts in Syariah, Fatwa, and Halal fields. The journal's editorial team is dedicated to fostering an environment of open and rigorous discourse and invites contributions from various disciplines. These contributions may employ different research methodologies and originate from diverse global perspectives. The journal also encourages the submission of original works in Malay, English, and Arabic, which must be previously unpublished and not under consideration by other publications.

Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts relevant to the scope of JFATWA. It is crucial to familiarize yourself with our peer-review process; articles undergo a rigorous double-blind review to maintain the highest standards of scholarly integrity. Acceptance of manuscripts is contingent upon the recommendations of peer reviewers and the final approval of the Editorial Board. Additionally, authors must adhere strictly to the author guidelines and manuscript template provided on our website. Submissions that do not conform to these guidelines or that deviate from the specified format will be rejected by the editorial team prior to review. Only manuscripts that meet these formatting standards will be considered for publication. The electronic manuscript submissions can be uploaded via https://jfatwa.usim.edu.my/index.php/jfatwa/submission/wizard

Manuscripts and any related correspondence must be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief through our online submission system (OJS).
