His Excellency the President of the University, Professor Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al-Hamed, has agreed to increase the amount of the research leadership reward to (10,000 riyals), a qualitative stimulus to be added to a range of incentives that His Excellency, may God protect him, adopted, which would enhance the university's research position with global databases (Scopus & WoS). This in turn means a greater prevalence of research by faculty members at the university, a higher rate of citation from them, and therefore an improved level of research ranking of the university.
It is worth noting that the Deanship of Scientific Research has launched the research leadership program to encourage researchers and help them overcome the material and technical challenges related to publishing in prestigious journals. The program’s terms and conditions include:
• To be a correspondent researcher from Prince Sattam bin Abdulaziz University.
• The research should be published in journals indexed in WoS, or Scopus, except for journals ranked in the fourth quarter in Scopus.
• The researcher applies for reward after publication of the research and its appearance on the journal's website.
• The benefit from this program and other financial rewards programs is not combined.
In this regard, the Deanship of Scientific Research wishes to thank the Director for his continued support positions for scientific research at the university, and calls upon researchers to take advantage of the research leadership program and other Deanship support programs, as this would benefit the researcher himself, the university, society, and the field of scientific research.
