Epistemé: Jurnal Pengembangan Ilmu Keislaman, is a semi-annual publication and a double-blind reviewed academic journal published by the State Islamic Institute (IAIN) Tulungagung. The journal was firstly published in 2006 and is one of the earliest Indonesian-based scientific journals on Islam and Muslim society studies. With its first publications, the journal strived to enhance the visibility of knowledge production by Indonesian scholars with research interests on Islamic studies. It later transformed into an international journal inviting Indonesian as well as non-Indonesian experts to contribute to the publication of the journal and to participate in the journal's editorial board. Since 2018 (December edition), the journal has published articles only in English in order to expand the readership and the contributors of the journal.  
Epistemé: Jurnal Pengembangan Ilmu Keislaman aims to strengthen transdisciplinary perspective on issues related to Islam and Muslim societies. The journal is committed to publishing scholarly works on classical and contemporary studies on Islam and Muslim societies. The journal focuses on topical issues and takes a transdisciplinary approach that benefits from a cross-cultural perspective. The published articles will explore the discussions of classical and contemporary Islamic studies from different socio-scientific approaches, such as anthropology, sociology, politics, international relations, ethnomusicology, arts, film studies, economics, human rights, law, diaspora, minority studies, demography, ethics, communication, education, economics, philosophy, and philology. Studies grounded in empirical research and comparison of relevance to the understanding of broader intellectual, social, legal, and political developments in contemporary Muslim societies reserve as the crucial scope of the journal.
