Policy on Affiliation

Name of University: 

It is recommended to write the university name as “King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals” or “KFUPM” only along with the complete name of your Department/Center.

In addition, it is important to standardize the way the name is written (format and spelling) as well in all publications to ease the search for publications and citations in the relevant databases.


It is reiterated that according to the University rules and regulations, the full-time University Affiliates (Faculty, Researchers, Staff, Students) are not allowed to affiliate or express their affiliation with outside non-KFUPM entities in their publications. In case of an outside organization contributing to the work, the author(s) can acknowledge that organization in the research publications.

The prohibition of Double Affiliation in publications and research outcomes upon joining KFUPM is extremely strict. Any exceptional cases, it can be communicated with the Vice Rector for Research.
