On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Deanship of Scientific Research (DSR), I welcome all of you to visit our website. Here you can find the following information regarding the activities of DSR:

The Deanship of Scientific Research was established in 1973 to bridge the gap between researchers, the community and the industrial sector. Collaborative research projects that facilitate the establishment of research teams and promote interdisciplinary research works are strongly favored. As today’s students are the researchers of the future, DSR strongly encourages undergraduate and graduate students to apply for research grants. Particular emphasis is placed on projects that tackle issues of national interest like renewable energy, water resources, transportation, economic and social development
In accordance with the role of the Deanship to generate and disseminate scientific knowledge, the University of Jordan has established Dirasat Journal, which covers three main fields: Shari’a and Law Sciences, Human and Social Sciences and Educational Sciences. DSR also hosts the following seven national research journals which cover diverse research fields: Jordan Medical Sciences, Jordan Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Jordan Journal of Agricultural Sciences, Jordan Journal of Business Administration, Jordan Journal of Economic Sciences, Jordan Journal for History and Archeology and, finally, Jordan Journal of Social Sciences.
All members of DSR will be very happy to answer your queries and provide further assistance. We also welcome any suggestion that you may have to improve our services.
