Former Journal

American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences (AJISS)
In 1984, under our former name of AMSS, we established the following peer-reviewed journal: American Journal of Islamic Studies (AJIS). However, in 1987, due to financial hardships, the AMSS Board of Directors agreed to a joint publication of its journal with the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Changing its name from AJIS to the American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences (AJISS), and publishing the journal jointly with the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) were among the requirements to acquire financial sponsorship. However, after our recent name change in 2013 from AMSS to NAAIMS, it was agreed by both IIIT and NAAIMS that IIIT will be the sole publisher of AJISS. Beginning with AJISS Vol 30: Fall 2013 Issue No 4, NAAIMS no longer co-published AJISS. 


A detailed overview of the journal’s history is highlighted by former AJISS Editor, Dr. Katherine Bullock, in her editorial commemorating its 25th anniversary (see AJISS Vol. 25: Winter 2008 – Issue No. 1).
