RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s National Center for Archives and Records (NCAR) on Tuesday launched the first issue of its “Journal of Document Studies.”
It is a peer-reviewed scientific journal to be published biannually. Through the publication of the journal, the center aims to promote research in the field of archiving and help researchers exchange ideas.
The center seeks to transform this journal into an intellectual platform for all researchers working in the fields of documentation and archiving.
The digital version of the magazine can also be accessed on the center’s website via the link https://www.ncar.gov.sa.
