Al-‘Arabiyya is indexed by many indexing services including: Clarivate Analytics and SCOPUS. 

General:  Al-'Arabiyya, a leading journal in the field of Arabic language and linguistics, welcomes scholarly and pedagogical articles, as well as reviews which contribute to the advancement of study, criticism, research, and teaching in the fields of Arabic language, linguistics, and literature. Authors are encouraged to present an original, scholarly contribution, a perceptive restructuring of existing knowledge, or a discussion of an idea with information and references on how to learn more about the topic. References should be appropriately and sufficiently extensive and demonstrative of comprehensive awareness of international scholarship; the conclusions drawn should be accurate, appropriately documented, and soundly argued, without being overextended.

The overall length of the article should be appropriate to the material treated and should not exceed 8000 words (in Times New Roman, 12 pt.); the material should be well-organized and the writing style fluent and professional. Articles in Arabic are welcome. We respectfully request that authors writing in a language other than their native language have their contribution carefully checked by a native speaker before submission.  Do not submit a piece that has been published elsewhere or is being considered for publication elsewhere. Authors alone are responsible for the opinions they express and for the accuracy of facts presented in their articles.

Each article undergoes a double-blind peer review process and is sent to at least two external reviewers before a final decision is made. Responses and comments concerning articles published in previous issues will also be considered for publication. Such responses may, at the discretion of the editor, be published under “Brief Communications.”

The journal also welcomes translations and bibliographies, provided they meet the following guidelines: translations should be scholarly, accompanied by an introduction or critical essay, annotations, commentaries, etc. Bibliographies should also be annotated, critical, and accompanied by an appropriate introduction. Translations and bibliographies are subject to the same review process as articles.
