ABOUT

IJOKS was established in June 2014. The Journal publishes high quality articles, reviews and perspectives in the fields of Kurdish Studies. The journal is of interest to researchers, academics, and those people concerned with mediating research findings to practitioners. 


Focus & Scope

The aim of our journal is to present original research on the Kurdish language and Kurdish peoples from the beginning of known Kurdish history to the present. In addition to the Kurdish language itself, any aspects of Kurdish relations influencing areas of what is now known as the Middle East (such as, Mesopotamia, Central Asia, the Caucasus, parts of Europe, or the Kurdish nation) fall within the journal’s scope.



Section Policies
IJOKS supports open access policy, so that every article published online can be accessed without any restriction or subscription worldwide. Open access is based on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

IJOKS accepts mansucripts, book reviews or translation texts for publication. As soon as the editorial team receives the submissions, two experts are assigned as reviewers. Our journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers. All reviewers evaluates the manuscript in terms of originality, methodology and its contributions to the field.


Publication Frequency
IJOKS publishes two issues per year, in January and August.
