IBA faculty co-authors a paper on finance bibliometric papers
Dr. Ashraf Khan, Assistant Professor, Department of Finance, School of Business Studies (SBS), co-authored a paper titled 'A bibliometric review of finance bibliometric papers', published in the Finance Research Letters (FRL).
As bibliometric approaches are increasingly a focus of literature reviews across different business disciplines, we apply a bibliometric approach to a review of bibliometric studies in finance, assessing 121 bibliometric studies. We identify four literature clusters: studies focusing on assessments of literature in trending topics; analysis of papers that employ emerging econometric techniques; studies grouped around particular fundamental topics such as market dynamics, behavioral finance, and corporate governance; and studies focused on retrospective celebration of single well-known finance journals. We identify which countries, institutions, and scholars have been particularly influential. Results suggest that the field of economics has been more comfortable publishing bibliometric studies than finance. Results also identify the mainstream finance journals that are particularly leading in publishing bibliometric studies, with results showing that these journals have particularly high-growing scholarly impact. We conclude that bibliometric studies are an important vehicle for highlighting and motivating emerging scholarship.

IBA faculty co-edits a book on Islamic Finance and Sustainable Development
Dr. Ashraf Khan, Assistant Professor, Department of Finance, School of Business Studies (SBS), recently co-edited a book titled 'Islamic Finance and Sustainable Development - A Sustainable Economic Framework for Muslim and non-Muslim Countries', published by Springer Palgrave-MacMillan. The book is a collection of chapters discussing the Sustainable Development Goals in the broader context of Islamic finance along with mapping the SDGs with Maqasid Al-Shariah. It provides a framework for both Muslim and non-Muslim countries to develop a sustainable economy which encompasses not only the concept of the welfare state but also supports development-related activities, ensures financial inclusion through equal distribution of wealth and alleviation of poverty, and protects the overall environmental and ecological system.
Consistent with the view that SDGs are embedded within the theme of Islamic finance, this book is specifically designed to meet the needs of key regulatory institutions, academic scholars, and industry practitioners both in the field of Islamic finance and sustainable finance.
