Welcome to Syria Studies, the official online journal of the Centre for Syrian Studies (CSS) at the University of St. Andrews. Syria Studies is a peer reviewed and indexed journal that has previously been published in hard form. We are proud to include on our Board of Reviewers some of the most renowned authorities on Syria.

The aim of Syria Studies is to provide a space for scholars and students to publish work focused on the study of modern and contemporary Syria (history, politics, economy, & society). Given the interdisciplinary nature of Syria Studies, high-quality submissions from various academic and professional backgrounds are encouraged. -- Raymond Hinnebusch, Director of CSS
