Shariah Equity Screening: Data, Information or Knowledge? - 2012
This research paper demonstrates how Shariah equity screening results differ based on the screening approach adopted by the screening provider. It examines and discusses compliances of various sample stocks over the two industry used approaches to screening.

Ratings Intelligence equity screening services reflects this Knowledge based approach to Shariah equity screening.
