Research at the university engages and is actively included in public debates through publications (respected academic journals and scholarly books) and channels including electronic and social media. The Faculty regularly publishes its biannual scholarly journal Islamic Studies Review (ISR) to provide an update to audiences on current, relevant research and publications around the globe. A key objective of the journal is, of course, to complement the work of existing journals focusing on similar issues around the world

In addition, the Faculty organizes an annual colloquium on Islamic studies. Each year, the colloquium presents various thought-provoking topics related to Islamic studies. The Faculty also includes research grants and awards, partly implemented in various programs including writing competition. The scholarly products of the colloquium and the writing competition will serve as important material for the Islamic Studies Review (ISR).
