Enlighten: Jurnal Bimbingan Konseling Islam is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal and is rated according to international publication standards. We swiftly publish articles online that are published twice a year with broad topic categories. We invite scholarly contributions on Islamic Guidance and Counseling in Southeast Asia, including works beyond this geographical scope, when addressing comparative or timely intervention topics relevant to the region. Enlighten encourages scholarly, theoretical, pragmatic, and contemporary research, by making clear conceptual and methodological contributions to the existing international literature. This may include but is not limited to areas such as Islamic counseling planning/management, indigenous Islamic Counseling, Therapy, Coaching, Counseling models and techniques, case studies, economics and welfare, counseling in various settings such as schools and colleges, hospitals, religious institutions, foster homes, psychology, etc., especially those related to society, Islam and its counseling interventions.
Our international editorial board fills the gap in the field of Islamic counseling and Western counseling by promoting interdisciplinary work in studying the relationship of cultures such as religion especially Islam, values, beliefs, life attitudes with individual problem solving alternatives for those interested and located in the Southeast Asian region. The journal does not favor theoretical or applied research and strives to be a bridge between levels of knowledge. Current efforts are to gradually improve the quality of research, along with supporting capacity building initiatives to enhance research in the field of Islamic guidance and counseling in the region. In Enlighten, we also publish special issues and special sections on request. Special issues allow us to publish papers that focus on specific themes, often related to emerging or under-researched topics.
