The award aims to motivate university members to use databases, which will achieve the best use of digital sources available in the SDL.
The award highlights the role of distinguished participants in Saudi scientific production and supports their contributions to society, raises positive competition in the field of scientific publishing among faculty members, researchers and post-graduate students, encourages motivation to excellence in scientific production published in the scientific journals for the members of the Saudi universities, raises awareness of the SDL role in supporting scientific production, increases the use of digital information sources available in the SDL and develops scientific research outputs of the universities quantitatively and qualitatively by encouraging publishing in prestigious scientific journals to achieve global dissemination.
The ceremony includes three morning workshops in addition to the evening online training workshops.
The excellence award includes three categories, including the SDL award for the top universities in using the digital information sources; the SDL award of Saudi scientific production published in the international databases (Web of Science ISI) and the SDL award of Saudi scientific production published in the international databases (Scopus).

Saudi efforts to promote tolerance, moderation lauded

RIYADH: The rector of the Islamic University of Brussels hailed Saudi efforts to promote moderate Islam, reject extremism, fight against terrorism, serve the religion and its followers, and respond to aberrant ideologies that have harmed the Muslim world.

Dr. Mustafa Khader Donmez also praised the programs carried out by the Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah and Guidance.

“The Kingdom has established specialized scientific, educational and media institutions, called for the unity of the Islamic nation, and cooperated with all that strengthens the nation’s unity and preserves its security,” he said.

“Saudi Arabia has been holding conferences inside and outside the Kingdom, to which it invited scholars and specialists, in cooperation with regional and international bodies to promote Islamic tolerance and address the causes of extremism and terrorism.”

Donmez said the Kingdom has invited Islamic institutions and international bodies to implement programs and events that fight extremism and condemn terrorism.

“The Kingdom is keen to promote international peace and communication between cultures and the followers of different religions through calling for interreligious and intercultural dialogue, a domain in which the Kingdom has been a pioneer,” he added.

Saudi Arabia “has taken the lead in spending for this purpose as it is in line with its high status on the Islamic and international levels,” he said. SPA Riyadh
