Abstract:

The activities of Scientific Research Fund (SRF) in Benha University (BU) were started at 2013 aiming to support the research capacity building of junior researchers and postgraduate students with financial fund. During the last three years, 83 research proposals were submitted to SRF and 35 projects were accepted. All the researchers received a training program of using the scientific research softwares such as Endnote, SPSS and the skillful use of digital library. All the researchers were mandated to upload their research papers on the Portal Website of BU along with the websites of Google Scholar and Research Gate to improve the World ranking of BU. Nowadays, 35 research groups were established in different faculties of BU. The major impacts of funding these groups were: 1) increasing significantly and considerably the number of citations in BU (32496 citation), 2) increasing the number of impacted publications (1 publication), 3) elevating significantly BU ranking globally to be 1238 in the last webometrics ranking issued in January 2016 and to reach the 3rd position in the Egyptian Universities ranking. In practice, we are looking to have an advance ranking in QS ranking particularly in Arab region.
