To make every faculty a publishing faculty.


To create every opportunity for faculty to publish in scholarly and high-impact journals.


This Office was created in January 2020. Originally, it was named as the University Journal Publications but was later on changed to the Office of Scientific Publications. It was formed because of the need to provide assistance and capacity-building sessions to all faculty within the University to write scholarly articles and publish them.
