Dean of Research Office

  • It has become apparent that there is a radical change in the publication standards at Palestinian universities in response to the Palestinian Universities Classification and Ranking Guide that the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission (AQAC) has recently put together. This Guide will have a long-term effect on the standing and ranking of Bethlehem University and its culture of excellence in research. Consequently, publishing in itself has become insufficient, since it has become necessary that researchers publish their academic and scholarly work in accredited peer-reviewed journals that have some, if not high, impact factor. The Research Council and the Office of the Dean of Research are pleased to invite you to a workshop to discuss these matters. The workshop will focus on the following issues:
    -Publication in accredited international journals that have been approved by the University of Jordan and that have also been adopted by AQAC.
    - Introduction to predatory journals and how to avoid publishing in them.
    The workshop will be held on Thursday May 9, 2019, at 11:30 am in L005 and will be facilitated by a group of Bethlehem University faculty members who participated in a similar workshop.

  • You can follow the latest updates on Call for Papers, and Grants and Fellowship Opportunities on the website of Dean of Research.

  • Please, find below an updated link to the New Faculty Accomplishments. Please, keep sending us your accomplishments so we can share them with Bethlehem University community:
