OISO Online-only Articles

Starting in 2011, OISO began adding a series of Regional Spotlights to supplement reference material. Commissioned and reviewed by a team of editors in chief, these articles have covered the major issues related to Muslim communities, from politics to women's rights to the arts and media. In addition, OISO has added revised versions of key articles from the Oxford Encyclopedia of the Islamic World.
