Arabic Digital Reform Institute

The Arabic Digital Reform Institute (ADRI) is a social enterprise from New Zealand that aspires to revolutionize the current practices in creating knowledge in Arabic. In doing so, ADRI aims to address the social issue of the limited availability of Arabic scientific content online. As the majority of Arabic research is currently stored in hard copies rather than online, it considerably restricts the accessibility of such content to be read, utilized or cited by the wider communities. The dilemma in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) is even more pronounced. Whilst academic content is often produced in Arabic, the poor technology infrastructure in these societies ensures that it is never published or shared with others for use or scrutiny. This, therefore, has an impact on education which then filters down to produce societal challenges.
