About Oxford Islamic Studies Online

"Oxford Islamic Studies Online features reference content and commentary by renowned scholars in areas such as global Islamic history, concepts, people, practices, politics, and culture, and is regularly updated as new content is commissioned and approved under the guidance of the Editor in Chief, John L. Esposito.

Encompassing over 5,000 A–Z reference entries, chapters from scholarly and introductory works, Qur'anic materials, primary sources, images, maps, and timelines, Oxford Islamic Studies Online offers a multi-layered reference experience designed to provide a first stop for anyone needing information and context on Islam.

The site also includes a growing Learning Resources area with a specially commissioned A–Z glossary, quick access to the key themes and questions from What Everyone Needs to Know About Islam; specialist-approved links to internet resources; a guide to Teaching Islam; thematic guides to issues in the Islamic World; and The Geography of the Islamic World—a topically organized collection of links to selected chapters and full-color maps from the latest edition of the Oxford Atlas of the World's Religions—provides access to a global view of Islam from earliest times to the present."
