About IRI:

Today it is imperative for a research journal to be presented in relevant online search system for getting its due place in the academic world. With the dawn of the electronic era, hundreds of online abstracting and indexing services have been established in almost every major academic language of the world but unfortunately for the journals published in Urdu and Arabic languages, there are no sufficient availability of such A & I services even in native countries of these languages. 
IRI provides A & I Services to the journals published in the discipline of Islamic Studies especially in Urdu and Arabic Language. The service will facilitate those journals which fulfill the required criteria of selection i.e. ISSN No., Abstract, Research Based Editorial Board, dedicated website etc.
