Knowledge World Company for Digital Content was established in Jordan under the name of Knowledge World Center in 2004. And then it became owned by Knowledge World Company in the year 2009. It is a company concerned with the production of Arabic digital knowledge in the aim of establishing e-Marefa database. This has been achieved according to the following considerations:
1. In light of the society’s reliance upon knowledge and the tremendous increase in the demand for information in various fields.
2. The acute shortage in Arabic digital content in comparison with international indicators.
3. The remarkably weak interest in building Arabic electronic databases whether by institutions in the Arab World or the international ones specialized in the design of international databases.
