Al-Qiraat: Journal of Al-Quran and Contemporary Issues practises paired academic review where the author and reviewer are unknown to each other. Any submitted manuscript, if considered suitable, will undergo a verification process which will involve at least a reviewer to a maximum of three reviewers. The number of reviewers is the prerogative of the Chief Author and the Editorial Panel. The review may be lengthy, but it is an effort to ensure that the result may be known to the authors the soonest possible. Delays are common as the reviewers are working academics with commitments. Patience on the part of the aithors are appreciated.
