2021-01-06 Call for papers in peer reviewed journal: Are Muslim-Jewish Relations Improving in the 21st Century

A very happy New Year. We are hopeful that the new year brings some positive developments.
On this hopeful note, we will be working with the open access journal Religions (ISSN 2077-1444) on a new Special Issue entitled “Are
Muslim-Jewish Relations Improving in the 21st Century?

I am serving as Guest Editor for this issue. For more information, please visit


We invite scholars to reflect on today’s relations and trends of Muslim-Jewish relations. This issue will be focused on areas where Muslim-Jewish relations seem to be improving but we also welcome submissions that are more skeptical in their outlook. However, we except well-argued scholarly pieces that help us to identify trends and factors that determine Muslim-Jewish relations today. We especially welcome case studies that look at projects that rediscover the local or regional Jewish or Muslim heritage and case studies of interfaith projects.

If this is your area of research, I would be delighted if you considered submitting a paper. I would also be grateful if you forwarded the call to scholars who might be interested in the topic.

Papers may be submitted from now until 30 April 2021 as papers will be published on an ongoing basis. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in
advance (lareina.wang@mdpi.com and gjikeli@indiana.edu).

In the hope that this invitation receives your favorable consideration,

we look forward to our future collaboration.

Best wishes,

Dr. Günther Jikeli
