By Dominique Akhoun-Schwarb|October 22, 2014|Middle East, Central Asia & Islamica|0 comments

The Zentrum Moderner Orient has released a working draft of their project “Jara’id” to be used as a research tool to identify and locate Arabic periodicals published in the 19th century. The project managers are inviting contributors to add to this recension.

The project aims at recensing all periodicals published in Arabic or in Arabic and in another language (like the usual pair of Arabic and Ottoman Turkish) or in Arabic written in a different script (like Judeo-Arabic) during the period from 1800 to 1900.

Periodicals are indexed by title, by date of first and last published issue, by place(s) of publication, by names of publishers and editors, language(s) of publication and holding institutions.
A bibliography of the most important secondary sources and available union catalogues are also available.

The IJMES transliteration rules have been retained.
