Over 100 researchers and academic members from all faculties in MMU participated in a one-day workshop on journal writing & publication for science and technology on 15 March 2017 at Cyberjaya campus and on 16 March 2017 at Melaka campus. It was co-organised by MMU Library and Research Management Centre (RMC) with the support of IEEE ComSoc/VTS Malaysia, IEEE Young Professional Malaysia & United Technology Sdn. Bhd. (IEEE Representative in Malaysia). The workshop was graced by the then Vice President (R&D), Prof. Dr. Heng Swee Huay at Melaka and the Chief Librarian, Kamal Sujak in Cyberjaya. Edward Kennedy from Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tan Ai Hui from FOE, and Assoc. Prof. Dr. You Ah Heng from FET as the featured speakers, inspired the participants to prepare manuscripts and get them published in journals or conferences. They also shared a lot of useful tips and hints during the workshop. With the strong partnership between MMU Library, departments & societies, the organiser expected to have more authorship workshops will be organised to catalyse research culture among the innovative MMU community. The targeted increase in the utilisation of library resources is essential to boost MMU, going forward “to be a Top 100 University in Asia with Global Recognition by 2020”.
