HBKU Press Launches Ejaz App at Doha International Book Fair

Doha, May 15, 2024 – Hamad Bin Khalifa University Press (HBKU Press) has launched a new app at this year’s annual Doha International Book Fair . Ejaz is a breakthrough for literary development that connects readers with literature and academic contributions by authors and scholars from around the world in both Arabic and English.

The app  aims to facilitate greater learning and access to quality literature while introducing the world to critical Arab scholars and novel writers. 

Developed for a fast-paced and increasingly globalized world, Ejaz enables users with an ever-growing list of books to  read  to access condensed easy to read digests and takeaways  across fiction and non-fiction . Titles available on the app include books that have been originally published in  Arabic or English, and similarly provides  respective key insights in either or both languages. Users can access books on topics covering biographies and memoirs, business and development, culture and society, health and wellness, and more. Ejaz  then helps users navigate available titles  by learning their preferences and introducing them to new authors and publications.

Ejaz further empowers readers with different learning preferences by offering digestible information in text and audio. Users who favor learning by text will be able to quickly grasp core concepts  through high-quality prose, while auditory learners will be able to listen to takeaways in both Arabic and English. The Ejaz playlist feature  also makes it easier  to save and organize audio digests for on-the-go use.

The app also introduces a  unique global book club through its Chat Club feature, where users can create personal profiles, engage with fellow readers, and leave their own comments and reviews. New titles  will be regularly added  to Ejaz, ensuring a consistently growing and evolving platform as more users register and interact with  the app. Users will also be able to make suggestions for titles they would like to see on the app for future access. Ejaz can be downloaded for free via  getejaz.com, Android and iOS. After a comprehensive trial period,new users can upgrade to full membership or even gift a subscription to friends and family.
