History

 

Al Manhal, the world’s first Arabic full-text database provider, is the result of 20 years electronic publishing experience of Mohamad Al-Baghdadi. He co-founded and managed international sales for ebrary, the leading ebook technology company.

Through his global and regional electronic publishing experience, he saw a critical need for research and professional content from the Arab world to be accessible throughout the region and the world. He recognized that while there is a growing emphasis on education and research in the region, there is a lack of cost-effective and reliable method for publishing and distributing the output of that research. In turn research without the corresponding publishing and distribution has minimal impact, and is an absolute waste of the region’s intellectual assets, research activities and budgets.

 

Mohamad founded Al Manhal in 2010 to provide the Arab world with a reliable, transparent and efficient platform that would enable the publishing community to maximize the regional and global exposure of their Intellectual Assets and in turn generate income streams to fund research activities, and empower the academic and research communities with cost effectively access the region’s high quality academic and professional research content.

Based on the scope and scale of his vision, Mohamad appreciated the need to finding the right kind of strategic partnerships to ensure the successful establishment and management of an infinitely growing network of information.

Now, researchers and professionals can access the Arab world’s highest quality content utilizing the world's top intelligent information research platform. For the first time, Arabic speakers will have access to the most advanced research tools to search and interact with Arabic documents.
