Open Access Journal: Mamluk Studies Review

Mamluk Studies Review

MSR logoMamluk Studies Review is a biannual refereed journal published by the Middle East Documentation Center devoted to the study of the Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt and Syria (648-922/1250-1517). It appears in January and July.

NEW: As of Vol. 13, No. 1 (January 2009), the journal is being published electronically and is available for free to all interested readers. To view or download MSR, visit and follow the links. Back issues are still available as bound volumes.

The goals of Mamluk Studies Review are to take stock of scholarship devoted to the Mamluk era, nurture communication within the field, and to promote further research by encouraging the critical discussion of all aspects of this important medieval Islamic polity. The journal will include both articles and reviews of recent books. Submissions of original work on any aspect of the field are welcome, although the editorial board will periodically issue volumes devoted to specific issues and themes. Mamluk Studies Review also solicits edited texts and translations of shorter Arabic source materials (waqf deeds, letters, fatawa and the like), and encourages discussions of Mamluk era artifacts (pottery, coins, etc.) that place these resources in wider contexts.
