Islamic Law: Articles and Journals

Finding Articles and Journals

A number of practice oriented journals as well as academic law reviews offer coverage of topics related to Islam and the Law. Some specific  journal titles are listed in the next column. Some of these journals are available in print in the Chickasaw Nation Law Library at Oklahoma City University, and some are also available in subscription databases, including HeinOnline, Westlaw, and LexisNexis.

All the journal articles searchable in HeinOnline are in full text. Westlaw and LexisNexis also have full text databases devoted to periodical legal literature.

However, many of the articles indexed or found in full text in the tools discussed above will be primarily from publishers in the United States, Canada, England and Australia.  Because the topic you are researching involves additional foreign and international topics, use of the the print subject index, the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals, may be necessary to locate additional article citations.  The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals is located in the General Collection.
