Salama Presented the Works of AArU Specialized in Supporting the Arabic Language


Prof. Amr Ezzat Salama, the Secretary General of AArU, participated in the International Conference on Laws, Regulations, Legislation, Policies and Language Planning conference activities, where the conference was held under the auspices of the Arab League, in partnership with Arab and international organizations and bodies. In fact, the conference was held on the occasion of World Arabic Language Day.


In his speech, Prof. Salama stressed the great efforts and interest provided by AArU to improve higher education in the Arab region, especially in the field of scientific research and publishing, digitalization, capacity building, and quality assurance. He also displays the Arab Impact Factor (AIF) project that is sponsored by AArU, where this project aims to deal with Arabic publications. AIF provides specific criteria for evaluating Arabic journals and indexing them, which encourages them to be at the same level as international journals. 

Moreover, Salama said that AArU is the main sponsor of the International Council for the Arabic Language, and it is also hosting the TANAL project. Put sufficiently, TANAL is a unique program of providing a Certificate of International Proficiency in the Arabic Language for non-Arabic speakers.
