The journal »Spektrum Iran« is published by the Cultural Department of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran since 1987. The first journal of year 2014 received the title »scientific learned journal« from the Ministry for Science and research of Iran. Publishers see the main task of »Spektrum Iran« in maintaining the humanitarian heritage and spreading its basic ideas in Germany. These include among others the areas of Philosophy, History and Humanities.

The learned journal is published quarterly. It methodically refers to mentioned topics.

The year 2017 plans the exploration of the following four questions:

  • Essence of Shia Islam?
  • Who is the Iranian poet-philosopher Saadi?
  • Religious minorities in Iran
  • Integration in Iran

While the first three questions analyze the role and function of the jihad, and work out the meaning of identity and seek requirements for freedom in every human life, the fourth part focusses on the concept of possibilities of a wise gage for human cooperation.

With this call for papers we would like to invite scientists from all disciplines of the humanities to support the journal »Spektrum Iran« with their publications and thereby contribute to the German-Iranian understanding.
