Arab Studies Quarterly (ASQ) is a refereed academic journal that was founded by the late Professors Edward Said and Ibrahim Abu-Lughod in 1979. They envisioned the Journal to be a platform for academic research to counter anti-Arab propaganda veiled by academic jargon. Since its inception, ASQ has addressed issues that dealt with the Arabs, their history, culture, and social and political institutions.
In 2021, the Journal became Open Access making all issues since 2008 open to the public and free to access. The Journal is published quarterly in February, May, August and November. The print Journal is archived at East Michigan University, East Lansing, and the electronic Journal is archived in Portico. The Journal is indexed in Scopus and the Emerging Sources Citation Index. Arab Studies Quarterly is housed in our Center.
