About Archivo

Archivo is a bimonthly magazine, issued by Awal Centre for Studies and Documentation. It is concerned with issues related to archives of Bahrain, the Gulf, and the Arab World as well as different countries across the world.

The magazine mainly covers the following fields: challenges of archives; ways of preserving archives; introducing the owners of the civil archives and those of official archive centres; introducing blogs and websites interested in documents and archives; translating archive-related articles from foreign languages; writing review of archive-related books; and following up with activities and events relevant to the memory and to the archive.

The title of this magazine shows that the word “Archive” is almost identical in pronunciation, spelling and root in most of the world’s languages. The title of our magazine however, adopts the Portuguese articulation of the term “ARQUIVO”.
