This section of the Islamic manuscripts site contains electronic publications which have no equivalent on paper. Usually they are shorter contributions to the field of study, remarks on details of manuscripts, smaller discoveries, etc. Readers are invited to submit their own study notes, preferably with images, for publication in this section.

For further information, please contact the publisher.
