Nature Publishing Group is pleased to announce the first issue of Nature Arabic Edition. The new publication's website is live at arabicedition.nature.com and the October print issue is in the hands of over 10,000 readers worldwide.
Nature Arabic Edition provides top quality science news and comment from Nature as well as summaries of all the research papers from the world's premier multidisciplinary journal. Founded in 1869, Nature is the world's most cited science journal and regularly wins awards for its news and comment.
Translated into Arabic, Nature Arabic Edition is available monthly in print, and the website will be updated weekly with new content. Content for the monthly print edition is selected by Nature Arabic Edition Chief Editor Dr. Madgy Said to ensure the most relevant content for the Arabic speaking world is included, and to maintain editorial independence.
"In its efforts towards promoting a knowledge-based society, KACST has worked to enrich Arabic content and make it available to all Arabic speakers. These efforts now include working with Nature Publishing Group in translating valuable content such as that of Nature," said Dr. Mohammed Al-Suwaiyel, KACST President.
"By doing so, Arabic speakers now have free access to the latest developments in science and technology, and in their native language, in hopes that the coming generations will have a deeper connection with and appreciation for science, technology and innovation."
"Many of the foundations of modern science were laid in the 'golden age' of Arabic science," said Steven Inchcoombe, Managing Director, Nature Publishing Group.
"We are seeing a new golden age for science in the Gulf, thanks to organizations such as KACST who are supporting science in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and throughout the Arabic speaking world."
