The Arabic Citation Index (ARCI), a new database on the Web of Science platform, makes Arabic journals more accessible to researchers worldwide by connecting Arabic scholarly content to the global citation network of high quality, peer-reviewed scholarly literature with more than 1.8 billion cited research references.

Funded by the Egyptian government and built Clarivate, ARCI is searchable in both Arabic and English, and hosted on the Web of Science platform.
