MirCap: Research management on the pre-Islamic Arabian peninsula: from the field to a collaborative platform

The Mircap project is proudly a part of the French national plan for Open Access Science. With the aim of “democratizing access to knowledge, useful for research, training, economy and society”, the MIRCAP project offers a collection of more than 20 years of a large set of data from two major projects in Jordan (Wadi Rum) and Saudi Arabia (Kilwa).

Seeking to bring public-financed research out of the restricted sphere of closed databases, the platform disseminates research on scientific research in the Arabian Peninsula available to specialists and non-specialists as well.
