Message from the Dean of Scientific Research

- 2021/06/06

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and blessings be upon the most honorable among Prophets and Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and companions. To proceed:

The Deanship of Scientific Research is one of the main pillars concerned with activating and following the process of the research movement in the university. It has strived throughout the past years to provide financial and technical support for researchers of all categories and specializations within its endeavors to achieve the strategic goals of the university serving to achieve the Saudi Vision 2030. This is in addition to crystallizing the outstanding research activities by establishing specialized research chairs seeking to open research cooperation channels and community services with various local sectors.

The deanship has developed a special scientific research platform concerned with research grants that provides a number of services. These services enable researchers to verify their research outputs by using the plagiarism detection services and following up on their research activities via an automatically updated control panel connected to a number of international classification engines.

The Deanship of Scientific Research seeks to apply quality standards in the UQU research outputs in such a manner that ensures the production of reliable research projects, which are precise and thorough enough to be published in prestigious scientific journals with a high impact factor. This contributes to raising the university status in the international rankings and to opening up new avenues for cooperation with different parties inside and outside the Saudi Kingdom. It also contributes to the inclusion of the university journals in international ranking databases, which attracts distinguished and specialized research and boosts the university's position at the international level.
