Mr. Anas Abdulhadi, Sales Manager for ProQuest in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa visit Ricest and ISC on 4/9/2018.
At this meeting, the ProQuest representative provided a report on the types of content and product information and services it provided. Worthy of mentioning, RICeST is pursuing the establishment of an information consortium for piloting in the southern region of the country that covers the universities of Shiraz, Bushehr, Hormozgan, Yasouj, and Technical University of Shiraz
ProQuest Central is the largest, multidisciplinary, full-text database available in the market today. This resource provides access to almost 40 of ProQuest’s complete databases, with a variety of content types across over 175 subjects, making this the broadest single research resource in the world. Unlike other resources, ProQuest Central is made up of separate, fully searchable databases which may be used together or separately
While ProQuest Central provides access to millions of much-coveted full text articles from thousands of scholarly journals, it also provides access to information not available in other aggregated resources such as:
  • Over 100,000 full text dissertations in the areas of business, psychology, physical sciences, health, education and more
  • Over 455,000 working papers from organizations such as NBER and OECD
  • Millions of up-to-date company reports, market and industry reports, and country profiles
  • The most comprehensive collection of market, industry, and economic reports available on the market today
