PERIODICALS’ INDEXES IN KUWAIT: AN APPRAISAL

Auther : By: Dr. Abdel Tawab Sharaf El-din

This paper aims at shedding light on some of the periodicals’ indexes published in Kuwait, particularly as regards their importance, preparation and prospects. The preparation of indexes for the regular periodicals published in Kuwait is of paramount importance, not only for achieving bibliographical control, but mainly for enhancing and promoting scientific research. With the world-wide information explosion which made it practically impossible for any single researcher to keep track of the welt of material and data relevant to any one given problem, it has become quite imperative to seek the invaluable assistance of periodicals’ indexes.

In most of the Arab countries, the utilization of appropriate tools and techniques in indexing is still in the incipient stage of development. It is important therefore that the specialists should consult and scrutinize all the important studies pertaining to indexing, classification, filing etc., published in foreign languages. The paper reviewed the experience of Kuwait in the preparation of periodicals’ indexes, through highlighting some of the most important, from the points of view of: approach, objectives, system of classification and filing. Special mention was made to the contribution of Kuwait University to the up-to-date indexing of periodicals published in Kuwait, in addition to a selected bibliography comprising a vast number of articles and papers dealing with Kuwait and the Arabian Gulf which was published in foreign journals.

The paper introduced a series of recommendations, which aim at giving further push to studies and researches associated with the indexing of scientific periodicals. The paper also called upon Arab institutions and specialized inter-Arab agencies to combine their efforts in formulating a unified Arab system of classification and indexing of information.
