Welcome to QNRF's Qatar Research Survey (QRS) offering a database on Qatari research
designed to enhance the national repository of research output in order to promote
awareness of the areas of research undertaken in Qatar and to provide a corpus of
work that can be used by future researchers.
This database was compiled from three sources:
1. Records of research output in Qatar from 1970 till end of 2003 compiled jointly
by the Planning Council and Qatar University in Guide to Research and Studies in
Qatar published in 2005. However, these records are limited in their content.
2. Records of research output collated by QNRF through an online survey and by direct
contact with academic, government and semi-government organizations and research
centers in Qatar for the period 2004-2007. The content of these records are more
extensive. Notably, it is stipulated that the affiliation of at least one of the
authors in the cited publication is a reference to a university or research organization
3. Titles of Masters and PhD theses (with abstracts for recent ones) of Qatari students
from 1970-2007, as compiled by the Qatar National Library.
