Clarivate Analytics and the Egyptian Knowledge Bank Create First Arabic Citation Index
Clarivate Analytics joined forces with the Egyptian Knowledge Bank (EKB) to launch the Arabic Citation Index (ARCI) in 2020. Powered by Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science (with a new Arabic interface) and funded by the EKB, it will be the first mapping of Arabic scholarly works in a citation index.
According to Clarivate Analytics, “The primary aim of ARCI will be to evaluate the quality and research output of Arabic researchers, universities and research organizations. By measuring these outputs, the ARCI will enhance the Arabic academic footprint, identify critical Arabic research, and improve funding opportunities for researchers.”
