concerns
Concerns
  • Emphasis on conference rather than journal publications
  • Some use of low quality journals
  • Level of research activities varies widely among the four groups
  • Groups mainly tackle teaching rather than research activities
  • Lack of regular research seminars by faculty
  • Poor attendance of faculty in graduate student research seminars/proposals/defenses
  • Inadequate showcasing of faculty research activities for the benefit of graduate students
  • Hassle in meeting DGS requirements when forming thesis committees
  • Poor dissemination of research results and insights gained from conference attendance
  • Do we have enough good topics for the increasing number of graduate students?
  • Inadequate record keeping of data on research activities at the Department level
recommendations
Recommendations
  • Encourage multidisciplinary and applied research that addresses the needs of, and leads to applications for, the kingdom
  • Need established senior research leaders in core areas who can steer visionary research in topical areas and guide activities of junior faculty and graduate students
  • Reorganize groups to reflect changes in research priorities
  • Define research groups more formally: Group coordination, regular meetings/seminars, pool of graduate students, website, etc.
  • Improve dissemination through enhancing the culture of giving/attending seminars: Regular seminars + seminars on: Project/Thesis Proposals, End of project, Return from conference, Return from sabbatical, etc.
  • Provide guidance to junior faculty in areas such as: grouping with others, utilizing conferences, selecting journals, attracting graduate students, applying for research funds (DAD style support)
  • Establish a web page for each research group that provides links to published papers, lists of funded projects, patents, current topics available for graduate research, etc.
  • Promote use of open-source (versus commercial) software in our research for improved learning, collaboration, and continuity, as well as reduced cost
  • Improve quality of record keeping of research activities/products by the department
