Ghaidan: Jurnal Bimbingan dan Konseling Islam dan Kemasyarakatan is a blind peer-reviewed and open-access journal that contained issues related to Islamic and social counseling. The journal is published two times a year (start from 2017) by the Raden Fatah State Islamic University (UIN Raden Fatah Palembang) with Online ISSN 2656-1050

Ghaidan aims to attract a broad spectrum of national and international readers and contributors. Articles are published that are of interest to counselor educators as well as to practitioners working in schools, community agencies, university and college counseling centers, and other institutions in which psychological counseling is practiced.

We welcome articles dealing with: research reports of studies that have relevance to counseling practitioners; descriptions of new techniques or innovative programs and practices; discussions of current scientific issues; commentaries on current professional issues; critical summaries of published research and/or current issues of practice; and studies that increase our understanding of individuals, groups, and the society to help illuminate their counseling needs. The Editor will be pleased to consider brief rebuttals to articles or brief commentaries (perhaps only a page or two) on issues of immediate relevance to this profession.
