ScienceOpen provides the publishing infrastructure to emphasize the diversity of knowledge in different subjects. With the Forum for Open Research in MENA Conference approaching, we want to revisit our Islamic Studies blog post, and highlight research covering the Middle East or originating from the MENA region.

The Forum for Open Research in MENA will bring together leading international experts and key regional stakeholders that support the advancement of open research across the Middle East and North Africa, providing a forum for librarians, researchers, government policymakers, universities, and international experts to discuss and debate key themes and issues.

Within a discovery environment of over 81 million articles, books, and chapter records, ScienceOpen offers services for publishers to highlight their academic content and promote the journal and publisher brands with unique collections, banner marketing, and search shortcuts.
