Papers on Sufism

Sufi: Journal of Mystical Philosophy and Practice seeks scholarly papers on all aspects of Sufism written in English. Since it has evolved recently from a regular paper journal to a multi-media app, submissions should be no longer than 3,000 words and geared towards a general educated readership interested in Sufism, without heavy annotation. Most of the senior scholars of Sufism in North America and Europe have published in Sufi at some point during the journal's 33-year history. The editorial board welcomes innovative formats and ideas, including papers significantly shorter than the maximum length of 3,000 words and the use of the audio and video features of the new app format.
