In recognition of the efforts made by Tabayyun’s contributing researchers since the journal’s Fall 2012 launch with the aim of advancing scientific research and learning through high caliber studies and research in philosophy and critical thought ˗ and considering the exceptional circumstances in which we are currently living ˗ the Arab Center offers free access to all the journal’s issues. We hope this can benefit the community taking an interest in intellectual and philosophical studies that undertake to subject received concepts and hypotheses to dispassionate analysis ˗ deconstructing, overriding, and synthesizing them as necessary towards arriving at clear, meaningful, and evidence-based conclusions. Given the restrictions necessitated by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and the global imperative to contain it, all contents of the journal will be freely available for download from the Tabayyun website: https://tabayyun.dohainstitute.org/
