PSU faculty members receive different kinds of funding to conduct their research and publish papers. The fund provided comes into different forms including but not limited to:

  • Payment of the publication fees.
  • Research grants for seed projects.
  • Publication incentives.
  • Research resources (computers, Internet, facilities, labs, full-time researchers, …).

It is important to provide an acknowledgement to Prince Sultan University in each publication as a recognition of the funding provided for conducting research.
