We cull through more than 340 media outlets to identify stories about the most consequential events, so you don't have to.

Started after the break of the 2011 protest movements, popularized as the Arab Spring that turned into proxy-wars for geopolitical purposes, as part of a research project, Islamic Societies Review became a trusted source of news and analyses covering key geopolitical events around the world. 


A decade after its launch, Islamic Societies Review continue to maintain the original essays site, and spun off the section (ISR Weekly) highlighting news stories and brief analysis-which is still edited by some of the same people who were part of the original team of researchers, students, and their mentor. 

With no reporters on the ground, the editorial team monitors social media platforms and mainstream media to document some of the most significant events often ignored or buried deep in the inside pages of newspapers. The content published is always cross-referenced to ascertain, as best as the due diligence process allows, that the news story we share is not misinformation; that is why you will often see screencaptures of sources.  

Today, ISR editors manually–not through algorithms and code/scripts–pick through 347 different news sources to curate the daily digest; then, out of the daily digests, the editors selects the top stories, the most consequential stories of the week, which are streamed daily on the website, ISR Weekly

A weekly digest is emailed to subscribers only, for free.
