With its series entitled The Arab Provinces in the Ottoman Documents, IRCICA aims to facilitate access of researchers whose working language is Arabic to the Ottoman documents concerning the Arab provinces of the Ottoman State. The first three volumes, published in 2010, 2011 and 2014 respectively, comprise documents from the periods of sultans Selim I and Sulaiman the Lawgiver. The fourth volume, published in 2015, is related to the Haramayn (Makkah al- Mukaramah and Madina al-Munawara) in the period of Sultan Selim II (974-982 H / 1566-1574).
Volumes V and VI published in 2017 are related to the Iraqi provinces of the Ottoman Empire during the reign of Sultan Selim II (H 974-982 /1566-1574 AD). They contain the reproductions of selected original documents in Ottoman, together with their translation and study in Arabic. The research project and book series will continue.
