The Western Arab Countries have started these last years to create the
infrastructures for the telecommunication and information technologies,. The
technology activities in these courtiers, although differs from country to another,
is considered a serious attempt to catch up to the rest of the world and keep up
with it in the quest of obtaining an information technology front throughout
installing and creating advanced information organizations, acquiring and
training all of their equipment and human needs in the frame of what is called
the Arab Digital Contents. All of these are a group of factors that support the
operations of creating the digital content in the Western Arab Countries to a
great extension and encourage them, although, it appears that the
characteristics of the infrastructures supporting the production of the digital
content in these countries are still in need for more nourishment and providence
of sufficient investment resources able to develop it, at the time that what has
been established as digital environment elements like the digital sector growth
level, the local competition level and reaching the digital content is still limited
and in great need for a series of measures to establish an acceptable growth in
the digital content receiving environment scale.

We will try through this research to recognize the most important characteristics
of the supporting structure to establish the digital content which are; reaching
the tools of communication and information, the usage of the information and
communication tools, the governmental information services, the information
digital contribution (electronic participation) which are still related to the
development and growth of the Arab West Countries’ communities’ position
and their role in the realization of their civilized project, by believing that the
information is acquiring more valued as it is broadcasted and published; that the
content is not just a text unbending information as opposed that it’s media
applicative and educative programs, and artistic and cultural innovations that
take technical forms with a clear function.

Abstract :
The web included qualitative information materials reflecting different ideologies,
intellectual visions and different orientations ; that digital publishing capabilities
provided the Possibilities for expression of ideological and political trends and
economic competition. Web retrieval systems have been influenced by trend factors
and qualitative bias, whether promotional, partisan or ideological, reflecting their
dependence on the organization, search and retrieval of web materials. The aim of this
study was to investigate the characteristics of bias as a phenomenon that occurred in
web retrieval systems and changed the nature of their activities and procedures, which
in turn affected the nature of the retrieved results directed at the users of these
systems. The study covered the analysis of the mechanisms and software of the work
with the biased retrieval systems, and the changes that occur when they impose some
kind of control or interference in the quality and order of the retrieved results. The
study used applied study of a sample of the highest retrieval systems used according
to the classification of alexa. the most important of results of the study is that web
retrieval systems are no longer processing systems and research of web materials in a
neutral way from the perspective of information-sharing studies, but the retrieval
systems are now viewed as the systems of managing and handling digital knowledge
in accordance with systematic business policies. The retrieval system is not limited to
retrieving the web material as it is, but rather to selecting the location and subject
matter of the availability and delivery of the content in a particular object.

The university thesis are considered among the most important sources of
information that are used by different researchers in many specialties and
scientific levels, but, there are multiple means of obtaining this kind of sources
and especially the electronic ones, so most libraries and information institutions
are based on digital repositories to publish their thesis in an electronic format for
making them closer to researchers and for promoting open access to scientific
The operation of uploading electronic thesis especially the ones of high
studies are related to a set of norms and laws which organizes this operation, but
these laws are varied according to the means of each library (financial, material,
human , technological and legal ones) . But the presence of these means in the
university libraries is insufficient for the electronic publication of these thesis,
there are other considerations that should be seen as: the legal framework that
allow or prevent this electronic availability of thesis.
Therefore, this study aims to know the laws or regulations organizing the
electronic availability of PhD thesis in digital repositories by knowing the point
of view of librarians; teacher-researchers about this availability.

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to explore and measure the visibility of
the scientific production of Egyptian universities and affiliated scholars in
Google Scholar. The study also explores the use of Google Scholar to build
academic profiles by the Egyptians academics.
Design/methodology/approach – The study used google scholar and publish
and perish software to calculate the number of profiles, number of citations and
publishing years. The sample of the study consisted of 18 Egyptian universities
out of 25 universities.
Findings - The study found that there is an increasing interest among Egyptian
universities and scholars who are affiliated with these universities to put their
profiles and scholarly publications on Google Scholar as it is considered a tool to
measure the university and the scholars’ performance in the academic sphere.
The study also showed that there is a significant increase in the number of
citations between 2016 and 2017 in many universities which reveal an
increasing move in publishing more research in the international outlets.
Research limitations/implications– This study focused on analysing the
visibility of Egyptian scholar on Google Scholar only. The study did not explore
the differences in structure and size between Google Scholar and other citation
Issue 22
Scholarly & Refereed Journal 2018

Originality/value– There are a few studies investigating universities and
scholars’ visibility on Google Scholar additionally, there is no Arabic or English
study that tried to explore Egyptian scholars’ visibility on Google Scholar. The
value of the current research lies in being the first study that focuses on
investigating and exploring the profiles of Egyptian universities in Google
Scholar which would lead to more studies that aim to explore how to increase
the visibility of Egyptian universities in the international context.

Keywords- Scientific production visibility, Egyptian universities’ visibility-
