In an effort to promote King Saud University and to enhance its stature we developed the long term objectives of scientific research by rehabilitating and further developing the scientific journals of the University within the framework of outstanding publishing. Our endeavors have raised the status of the university and thus allowed her to represent the scientific journals it publishes with an impact factor which is often used in evaluating and monitoring the level of scientific research and innovation of the global universities. From this standpoint the University is currently publishing and printing sixteen scientific journals which are supervised by the Elsevier Group and of which five journals have recently been included in the global indexing service known as Thomson Reuters (TR).
