With hundreds of Arabic newspapers across the world, both state-backed and independent, it’s harder than ever to choose between outlets. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the most influential Arabic language newspapers.
Our methodology combines quantitative measures of a paper’s reach and impact, with qualitative factors to provide an overall influence score. It considers both the overall footprint of the publication, as well as measures of influence. Searchers online are more likely to find higher ranking papers in a search due to the number of pages on its site, as well as the number of links referencing the papers’ individual web pages.
