MELA Publications

Library books wiki commonsMELA contributes to the academic discourse in Middle East Studies through articles and book reviews submitted to MELA Notes, which is available through JSTOR with no “moving wall.”

In addition, MELA has embraced open-access scholarly communication by offering our journal online for free.

Our blog MELA Notepad publishes book reviews before their official inclusion in MELA Notes, as well as committee updates, special projects, and other information relevant to our field.
