Al Manhal works with academic publishers, research and scientific societies, and university presses. Our team of expert librarians and our Editorial/Advisory Board evaluate all incoming publishing partners and in content against the most stringent criteria in order to ensure the highest quality and relevance for our global community of researchers and users. We also check all content for plagiarism in order to ensure that our customers are always accessing authoritative, copyright protected content that is based on primary research.
Al Manhal’s databases are currently made available to institutional libraries that in turn provide access to their members, students, researchers, etc. If you are interested in Al Manhal databases, please ask your librarian to contact us by filling this form or send us an email at email@example.com and we will contact your institution.
Yes you can. You can search the full-texts of the content, and browse the table of contents, the index, and the first two pages of each chapter for free. The platform tools (InfoTools®) are limited to subscribers only.
At Al Manhal we continuously strive to meet our customer’s budgetary requirements through flexible pricing options as follows:
• Annual Subscription: Unlimited, simultaneous access to continuously growing eBook, eJournal, eTheses & eCulsters collections, by subject area or by publisher. This model presents a very affordable way for libraries to ensure that their patrons have access to the most recently published titles in a single and multi-disciplinary collection. Subscription pricing is based on the number of end-users.
• Perpetual Access Purchase: One-time purchase for unlimited simultaneous access in perpetuity, to fixed eBook collections, available by subject, publisher or custom collections. Perpetual Access pricing is based on the number of titles and end-users.
Our eBook collections grow in value by approximately 30% per year. We calculate the value of our books based on the publishers cover price and the age of the book in order to ensure that we apply commensurate value to newer titles. A 30% growth rate in value translates into an annual growth of the number of titles from 40% to 60% per year.
Our journals database currently includes over 300 titles in the Humanities & Social Sciences, and STM. By the end of 2016, we expect to have 400 Journals online.
Al Manhal publishes eReports on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, depending on the collection. We currently publish reports from 3 regional think tanks and research institutes, and expect this to grow to 20 by the end of 2016.
The Plug-in Reader, referred to as ‘ebrary Reader’, has been declared discontinued and will soon be removed from the platform. Therefore, we recommend using QuickView since it is easily accessible, requires no installation, and will continue to be updated with new features.
