MENA's First Digital Platform for Scholarly Literature Zendy Expands into Bahrain

The platform will collaborate with researchers, students, institutions and publishers in Bahrain to expand its 120,000 publications.

Launched at the end of 2019 as an ambitious project between Dubai-based company, Knowledge E, and hundreds of researchers, students, institutions and publishers, Zendy is an online platform that gives users access to an array of scholarly research and literature on a subscription basis.

This month, Knowledge E – which works with various entities and institutions to provide education and training solutions – has announced that the platform is to launch in Bahrain, adding to Jordan, Algeria, Bahrain, Palestine, Morocco, Tunisia and UAE.

“We are extremely excited to launch Zendy in Bahrain, to help enable the local science and academic community and provide more of the region with access to scholarly research and literature,” founder and CEO at Knowledge E, Kamran R. Kardan, said of the news. “Bahrain is fast emerging as a regional hub for technological innovation, and one of the key drivers for innovation is the ability to access and share knowledge. Zendy’s launch in Bahrain aims to fuel the local knowledge economy and in turn foster an innovation ecosystem.”

Since launching, Zendy has amassed around 8,5000 users across MENA, who have access to over 120,00 publications, among them 30,000 journals and 30,000 e-books. The digital library allows users to save searches, export citations and explore through a number of different criteria.
