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