We provide access to the only full-text searchable database of peer-reviewed eJournals from the Arab and Islamic world. Researchers and students can access tens of thousands of articles from hundreds of journals from the world’s leading universities and research institutes.
Our Arab Citation Index provides an objective means to critically evaluate the Arab and Islamic worlds’ leading journals. Our proprietary M Factor (Al Manhal Factor) is a measure of the frequency in which journal articles are used and cited. By tracking how articles are used and cited, M Factor helps measure research influence and impact.

"In providing this online service, Al Manhal has responded to long-standing demand in the market. It will spread the pioneering research, thought and innovation emanating from the Middle East and support the work of academics.

“Al Manhal database for Arabic peer-reviewed Journals adds a distinct quality to our Arabic eLibrary which clearly suffers in this area andt is a key tributary to the educational development in the Arab world. Al Manhal peer-reviewed Arabic Journals is a necessary tool to any Arab and foreign researcher, which particularly serves graduate students and faculty members. We hope to see Al Manhal databases for Arabic Journals receive coverage in the Arab World.”
