About the Journal
Islamic Guidance and Counseling Journal (IGCJ) is a scholarly, peer-reviewed, and open-access interdisciplinary journal that is published twice a year (in January and July). The journal is a collaborative effort between Institut Agama Islam Ma'arif NU (IAIMNU) Metro Lampung and the Asosiasi Bimbingan dan Konseling Indonesia (ABKIN). It is managed by the Study Program of Guidance and Counseling for Islamic Education within the Faculty of Tarbiyah.
IGCJ provides a means for sustained discussion of relevant issues that fall within the focus and scope of the journal, which can be examined empirically. The journal publishes research articles covering all aspects of counseling, psychological intervention, guidance, mental health, and coping behavior, especially those within the Islamic context. The broad range of Islamic contexts published by the journal includes, but is not limited to, research in Muslim populations, mental health issue prevention, mental health interventions in Islamic traditions, etc. We warmly invite all individuals who possess a keen interest in the focus and scope of IGCJ to contribute to our publication.
