[NOTE via Evyn Kropf: "Please note that these manuscripts are presently not being made available in their entirety open access, but for a fee (at this stage most manuscripts appear to be set at the price of 10 Omani Rials or about 25 USD)... Registration is also required. And images are watermarked.
