Kuwait Univer­sity churns out 105,755 e-pub­li­ca­tions Min­istry es­pouses pa­tri­otic val­ues

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: Kuwait Univer­sity’s (KU) Aca­demic Pub­li­ca­tion Coun­cil an­nounced yes­ter­day that it has pub­lished some 105,755 sci­en­tific re­searches and stud­ies in the pe­riod from Oc­to­ber 2015 to Septem­ber 2016, an in­crease of 38,997 analy­ses from last year.

The in­crease in the num­ber of stud­ies, pub­lished elec­tron­i­cally, rep­re­sents earnest ef­forts to boost aware­ness and knowl­edge of a range of sci­en­tific ar­eas, the coun­cil said in a state­ment.

More­over, in or­der to bring that goal to fruition, the coun­cil has part­nered with Saudi com­pany Dar Al-Man­dumah, one of the largest data­bases in the Arab world, the state­ment noted, ad­ding that this should serve as a launch­pad for more sci­en­tific stud­ies.

On a 58 per­cent in­crease in mar­ket­ing, the coun­cil noted that this proves that it has gar­nered the trust of read­ers, which would pay ul­ti­mate div­i­dends in so­lid­i­fy­ing KU’s po­si­tion as amongst the most pre­em­i­nent aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions.

Pa­tri­otic val­ues

Mean­while, a se­nior Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cial un­der­lined the min­istry’s com­mit­ment to in­still­ing pa­tri­otic val­ues within stu­dents. As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary for Ed­u­ca­tional Re­search and Cur­ricu­lum Dr Saud Al-Harbi made these re­marks on the side­lines of the open­ing of an ex­hi­bi­tion or­ga­nized by schools af­fil­i­ated with Kuwait’s Na­tional Com­mis­sion for the United Na­tions Ed­u­ca­tional, Sci­en­tific and Cul­tural Or­ga­ni­za­tion (UNESCO). More­over, he noted that the expo is de­signed to show­case Kuwaiti cul­ture and its con­tri­bu­tions to Is­lamic civ­i­liza­tion.

On the ex­hibit, Harbi added that it con­tains pro­fes­sional works that il­lus­trate Kuwait’s lofty po­si­tion in Is­lamic and Arab civ­i­liza­tions. He also noted that such events are sig­nif­i­cant be­cause they help de­pict a fa­vor­able im­age of Is­lamic cul­ture. In the mean­time, Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of Kuwait’s UNESCO com­mis­sion Na­dia Al-Waz­zan said that Kuwait be­ing cho­sen as the “Cap­i­tal of Is­lamic Cul­ture 2016” is a tes­ta­ment to its cul­tural promi­nence. She also hailed Kuwait as a cul­tural bea­con in the re­gion, which pushes the country even harder to achieve fur­ther devel­op­ment and pros­per­ity, ad­ding that the com­mis­sion firmly sup­ports all cul­tural and artis­tic works that help por­tray an un­sul­lied im­age of Is­lam.— KUNA
