Saudi Arabia is taking major steps to establish an advanced research and educational center at King Saud University in Riyadh. Contracts have been signed to build two major research institutes at KSU which will be able to compete with other world-class research facilities.
In addition to the building plan a five year letter of understanding was signed with the world renowned textbook publisher Macmillan of the UK. Macmillan has agreed to provide KSU and its 55,000 students with a host of services which will include training for high-quality scientific editing; workshops on writing; and how to publish research papers for globally read journals.
KSU is committed to taking a leadership role in developing Saudi Arabia’s knowledge economy,” said Dr. Khaled Al-Rasheed, director of KSU’s Scientific Fellowship Program.
