About the Journal


The Department of Library Science at UIN Alauddin Makassar was first established in 1999. Over time, by the year 2013, some initiatives from the department members led to the creation of a publication named Khizanah al-Hikmah: Journal of Library Science, Information, and Archival Studies. This journal was created to disseminate the academic writings produced by the faculty members in the department. From then until now, Khizanah has consistently been published twice a year, in June and December.

Initially focused on publishing writings from the department's faculty, in 2018, some authors from outside the institution started to show interest in publishing their works in Khizanah. This was due to the evolving management governance that followed the applicable journal governance standards. Khizanah received its first accreditation recognition in 2018, with a Sinta 3 ranking. Shortly after, following the release of one issue, the management proposed accreditation again and was eventually recognized as a nationally accredited journal with a Sinta 2 ranking in 2019.

Khizanah continues to strive to develop its journal management, being indexed in various national and international indexes. The journal always seeks to engage experts to assess the quality of the received manuscripts, and their contributions are highly appreciated.
