Global research is pluralizing. Muslim societies are now among the fastest-growing science systems in the world, despite a slow start. This article discusses higher education research in Muslim societies regarding their growth, international/domestic research collaborations, citation recognition, and research area focus. The article also highlights several challenges, including relatively low attention to humanities research, to which the rich Muslim culture can contribute significantly, and focusing on short-term wins through double affiliations in some systems.
