Saudi Arabia is now the world’s fifth largest spender on education as
a percentage of total government expenditure



King Abdullah University for Science and Technology with an
endowment of around US$20 billion, is attracting faculty and
postgraduate students from across the world



The world’s biggest women’s only university is under construction,
expected to accommodate 40000 students.



King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology is working closely
universities and industry to convert academic discoveries into
commercial products and services.



Saudi Arabia has launched a 25 year strategic plan to develop key
technology sectors.

We have identified:


China,

and the Middle East

as most the promising countries/regions where we want to have editorial people on

International
Diversity: Authors, editors, editorial advisory board members?


Does the journal offer a different perspective or focus that is relevant to you?


Does journal reflect the global context in which scientific research takes place?


If a regional journal, how does it compare with other journals from the same area?
Will it enrich coverage in a subject or provide a regional perspective?
