Founded in 2018, BITARA International Journal of Civilizational Studies and Human Sciences (e-ISSN 2600-9080) is a refereed international journal of civilizational studies and human sciences; published quarterly, and can be said to be the newest academic journal dealing with the theme in Malaysia.
The international perspective is also reflected by the journal’s trilingual approach; it is published in Malay, English and Arabic languages. The published articles as well as comments, research reports, book reviews, conference papers and others are on civilizational studies as well as other fields written from human sciences perspectives. In order to encourage academic brainstorming, we are soliciting your contributions throughout the year.
All submitted articles should report original, previously unpublished research results, experimental or theoretical, and will be peer-reviewed. Articles submitted to the journal should meet these criteria and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should follow the style of the journal and are subject to both review and editing. BITARA will only accept submissions sent through website (new submissions) or e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
