This study aimed at suggesting a strategic vision to develop research performance at the Palestinian universities in the light of requirements for transition to a research university. Researchers used the mixed method. Quantitative data were collected by using a questionnaire that was applied to (339) university instructors and the qualitative data were collected from three focus groups. The study concluded that the estimations of the study participants on the real research performance at the Palestinian universities were of a relative weight (55.28%). Based on the results, the researchers structured a matrix for strategic analysis and a suggested strategic vision that were presented to a focus group of experts (No=7) in educational administration and scientific research to control it. The study recommended the necessity to adopt the strategic vision suggested by the Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education and Universities, in addition to the adoption of publicized scientific and administrative policies to support the development of the Palestinian universities and the transformation from traditional universities to research universities.
