The Arab Social Science Monitor is a major project of the Arab Council for the Social Sciences (ACSS) and is a permanent observatory of social science higher education and research in the Arab region. It documents the infrastructures of knowledge production in terms of institutions and resources and chronicles the work, careers and accomplishments of Arab social scientists in the region. A framework guides all ASSM research and activities and consists of five components: Individuals, Institutions, Products, Practices, and Uses. Each component focuses on different units of study and employs different tools for data collection. The ASSM makes data and knowledge produced publically available through different mechanisms. One of the key publications of the ASSM is the Arab Social Science Report (ASSR), a biennial publication on the evolving state of social science research in the region.
