In appreciation for the great efforts undertaken by the researchers contributing their studies to Tabayyun, since its first issue in 2012, and in service of public knowledge acquisition, the Arab Center has decided to make all issues of Tabayyun available for free public access online. This comes in light of public health measures to mitigate the risks posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. All journal materials are available to download at: https://tabayyun.dohainstitute.org/ar.
