Introductory Notes 
This website provides a chronology of Arabic periodicals between 1800 and 1929. 
Although it is meant to include all periodicals published in Arabic or in Arabic and in another language (such as the usual pair of Arabic and Ottoman Turkish) or in Arabic written in a different script (such as Judeo-Arabic) during the period from 1800 to 1929, this chronology is certainly incomplete.  Furthermore, there remain numerous problems with dating and locating individual publications as well as identifying their owners, editors, or publishers. 
Thus, at the moment we consciously publish a working draft with the purpose of making our information available to the scholarly community. We welcome all readers to submit any comment, corrections, and new data using Adam Mestyan's official email address. We would like to ask all contributors to always refer to the ID of each title – in case of comments on existing entries – and cite their sources, as otherwise we cannot consider the submission for being included in the table. Every contribution will be acknowledged. 
We chose to present the core data as a table containing information on titles, dates of first and last issue published, place(s) of publication, names of publishers and editors, language(s) of publication, and available collections (so far only in English/transliteration but Arabic indexes are coming as well). In addition, we provide various indexes of holding institutions and locations, as well as a bibliography of the most important secondary sources and available union catalogues.
