Darul Ulum: Journal of Islamic Studies, published by Darul Ulum Research Centre of STIT Darul Ulum Kotabaru Kalimantan Selatan since 2008, can be said as the oldest academic journal dealing with the theme in South Borneo.
The subject covers textual and fieldwork studies with various perspectives of philosophy, Religion, education, culture, and many more. In the beginning the journal only served as a scholarly forum for the lecturers at the State Institute of Islamic Studies. However, due to the later development with a broader readership, the journal has successfully invited scholars and researchers outside the Institute to contribute.
Darul Ulum, published twice a year, always places Islam and Muslim in the central focus of academic inquiry and invites any comprehensive observation of Islam as a theological belief and a system of society and Muslims as those who practice the religion with their many facets. This journal, serving as a forum for the study of Islam in Indonesia and other parts of the world within its local and challenging global context, supports focused studies of particular theme and interdisciplinary studies. Darul Ulum has become a medium of diffusion and exchange of ideas and research findings, so much so that researchers, writers, and readers from various traditions of learning have interacted in the scholarly manner.
