In the first four months of 2011, the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) database shows King Saud University having increased its scientific publications by 108% over a similar period last year.
The survey results are further testimony to KSU’s mercurial climb over the last four years in the production of published scientific papers, reviews and research. In 2010, KSU faculty and departments produced 1,211 scientific papers compared to 517 in 2009, a staggering 134% increase. Many of the papers, past and present, have appeared in prestigious world-wide periodicals such as Science and Nature.
KSU’s expanding ISI standing, according to University officials, reflect the dedication of KSU staff and the Ministry of Higher Education’s encouragement and should be credited in large part to Saudi leadership’s continued and infinite support.
ISI is the main source that follows up distinguished scientific publication in world-class universities, comprising a large number of highly-precise databases that monitor citations of scientific research papers published in international journals.
