The full text of the archive was obtained by digital character recognition (OCR). Arabic is a difficult language in this process. The editions from 1980 onwards were available as printed sources and therefore have a higher recognition rate. Earlier editions are based on microfilms and may therefore be less accurate.
Attention: Unfortunately the provider made bad experiences in several countries with mass or automated downloads during the test phase. Therefore the PDF download has been deactivated. If the database is licensed, this restriction will not exist.
