This study aimed to explore the status of Indonesian journals in the discipline of Islamic economics and finance. In the last two decades, the emergence of Islamic economic journals was striking. As of November 2019, the Science and Technology Index (SINTA) contained 60 journals on Islamic economics, banking and finance, accounting, management and business, and philanthropy. To explore these journals, a content analysis was conducted using data in the SINTA database. Most of the Islamic economics and finance journals were in SINTA level 4 (out of 6). Only 8 journals were ranked in SINTA level 2, and none were in SINTA level 1. Based on these results, additional efforts are needed to improve journal quality. Moreover, many journals have not been indexed in SINTA, which might have good quality. The author suggests that further efforts be made to include Islamic economics and finance journals in other abstracting and indexing databases, such as the Directory of Open Access Journals, Moraref, and Garuda.
