Research is an essential part of the mission of Birzeit University. Birzeit faculty members and students conduct research in many fields, seeking to expand human knowledge and to serve their society by tackling the problems that Palestine faces.
The research is mainly supported by grants received, on a competitive basis, from various research-promoting foundations. In addition, the university allocates part of its budget to support faculty members starting new research projects. Researchers collaborate with colleagues at the university and at other universities and research institutions in Palestine and throughout the world.
Publications by Birzeit University faculty can be found in a publications database maintained by the university. Master's thesis publications are also available, in part or in full, in a library database.
