The journal aims to re-examine the culture and civilization of the Orient within a wide cultural context and its ancient and current geography through reflection and innovative thinking while employing approaches inspired by oriental culture. The introduction of new theories associated with this important part of human civilization will shed light on many uncertainties about today’s culture. To facilitate the use of researchers, this journal is open access and free charges for the authors.

The articles submitted to this journal will undergo a double-blind peer review process and will be published after three rounds of reviewing and editorial approval. The journal also uses iTenticate for checking similarity and plagiarism for English manuscripts and Hamyab for Persian manuscripts.
