Bethlehem University Journal
Editor-in-Chief: Prof. Jamil Khader
The Bethlehem University Journal is an annual peer-reviewed scholarly journal published by Pluto Journals in partnership with the Office of the Dean of Research at Bethlehem University. Bethlehem University Journal transitioned to open-access (OA) publication on JSTOR since January 2021.
About the Journal
The Bethlehem University Journal was launched in 1981 to promote a culture of excellence in research and research ethics in matters that pertain not only to Palestine and the region but also to the world in general. It serves as a vibrant platform where research communities in the region and the world can engage in dialogues and conversations that can contribute to the production of original and transformative knowledge about the state of disciplinary and interdisciplinary research and its future.
Aims and Scope
BUJ publishes original, theoretically informed articles on a variety of topics from different disciplines in both Arabic and English. BUJ encourages submissions that respond to current debates in the literature and offer substantive analysis and original discussion that aim to contribute to the advancement of the discipline in line with the local and international ethical standards in research.
BUJ is interested in promoting research grounded in meta-critical and reflexive attitudes towards traditional and emergent research methodologies. It encourages research that develops alternative epistemological assumptions and practices that refract the international struggles and experiences of vulnerable, colonized, and disposable communities within the realities of the global capitalist system.
