dc.description.abstract This article aims at questioning the relationship between Arab social research and language by arguing that many factors including the political economy of publication, globalization, internationalization and commodification of higher education have marginalized peripheral languages such as Arabic. The authors demonstrate, on the one hand, that this marginalization is not necessarily structurally inevitable but indicates dependency by choice, and, on the other hand, how globalization has reinforced the English language hegemony. This article uses the results of a questionnaire survey about the use of references in PhD and Master's theses. The survey, which was answered by 165 persons, targeted those who hold a Master's or PhD degree from any university in the Arab world or who have dealt with a topic related to the Arab world, no matter in which discipline. © The Author(s) 2014.
