At the Sultan Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Centre for Islamic Studies (SOASCIS), we see the process of publishing and disseminating information as a critical element of our scholarly journey. Our unwavering commitment to this pursuit is a reflection of our dedication to futuring together, a principle that encompasses our collective quest for knowledge, discovery, and understanding. As part of this collaborative effort, we actively seek to share our academic findings with not just the scholarly community but also with the wider world, thus bridging the gap between academia and society at large. We believe that through publication, our insights and discoveries can resonate beyond our centre and foster global dialogues about Islam and Muslim societies.

Our publications stand testament to our emphasis on collaboration and knowledge sharing. Each one represents a facet of our ongoing scholarly discourse, a milestone in our relentless pursuit of academic excellence. They are the tangible products of intellectual exploration and interdisciplinary dialogue, serving as critical conduits for the flow of ideas and perspectives. In our mission of bridging worlds and futuring together, we are committed to publishing research that expands the global understanding of Islam, shines a light on the experiences of Muslims, and fosters open and insightful conversations in both academia and the broader global community.
