Das AlSharekh Archive bietet den Zugriff auf über 250 arabische Literaturzeitschriften aus einen Zeitraum von der frühen arabischen Renaissance (an-Nahda) in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts bis zum Ende des einundzwanzigsten Jahrhunderts:
AlSharekh Archives is one of the most distinguished Arabic digitization initiatives. It is the first and only one to focus on the content of literary journals providing online access to the content of 228 Arabic literary journals, from 23 Arab countries, dating from the early Arab renaissance (al Nahda) in the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the twenty-first century.
Among the journals are Arab renaissance journals such as Al-Muqtataf, Al-Muqtabas, Al-Hilal, Al-Adib, Al-Ustadh, Al-Mashriq, Al-Jamaa and others. Authors of the journal articles include prominent Arab writers such as Gerji Zidan, Taha Hussein, Yaqub Sarrouf, Hafez Ibrahim, Albert Adeeb and many others.
The AlSharekh Archives’ site is very easy to use and navigate. Users can browse the journal issues or search the metadata indexes of the articles. Journal articles are viewed as images and have not been converted into digital texts because of difficulties in Arabic OCR.
Procedures to protect copyright are mentioned in the preamble on the first page of the Archives website. It should be noted that many journals in the Archives are outdated and not subject to intellectual property law.https://archive.alsharekh.org/EnAbout
