The journal managed by the Graduate Program of IAIN Salatiga managed to rank third for the best journal in Asia according to SJR's version for the field of religious studies with an SJR of 0.174.

"Thank God. For two years in a row, the IJIMS IAIN Salatiga journal is still rated Q1 according to the Scimago Journal Rank version. This achievement will certainly continue to be improved and maintained," said IAIN Salatiga Record, Prof. Dr. Zakiyuddin, M.Ag. According to him, journals are academic towers that reflect academic freedom and campus progress. "The achievements of these journals are one of the capitals towards UIN Salatiga."

"Four PTKIN journals, including IJIMS from IAIN Salatiga, have received the highest international recognition, which is being able to enter the Q1 category at SJR. This achievement is proud, and one should be grateful for it so that it can be an encouragement for other PTKIN," said the Acting Director-General of Education at the Ministry of Religion, Kamarudin Amin.

Director of Islamic Higher Education, Arskal Salim, said similarly, "This extraordinary achievement is the result of long hard work and dedication from all parties who are directly involved in the process of improving the quality of publications at PTKI in recent years." He hopes this achievement can motivate other journals within UIN, IAIN, and STAIN to achieve similar achievements.

The first IJIMS was published in 2011. As of February 2020, IJIMS has published 34 editions with a distribution of writers from within and outside the country. At the beginning of 2020, IJIMS was ranked 50th out of 456 world's best journals according to Scopus' version in the field of Religious Studies.
