Universiti Utara Malaysia Press

Universiti Utara Malaysia Press, the academic world encompasses the accumulation of knowledge and books. Research activities are important but without publishing their findings and sharing them with society, they are meaningless. Indeed, they will not benefit anyone. By appreciating the publishing initiative, we are in fact supporting an academic culture.
Thus, this Publishing Guide is intended to clarify further matters relating to publishing, particularly the policy and regulations of UUM Press, types of publications, publishing channels, guidelines on the preparation of manuscripts and useful references for authors. It also contains acts relating to the responsibilities of authors in the production of their works to ensure that their published works are free from copyright and plagiarism issues.
The regulations that are outlined here are as stipulated by the University Publication Committee and they are intended to expose authors to the correct guidelines, thereby facilitating the process of obtaining publishing approval and the publication process itself.
It is hoped that with the availability of this guide, which needs to be constantly updated, authors will be able to produce their writings and subsequently enrich academic publishing at Universiti Utara Malaysia in accordance with international standards and with the expert assistance of the UUM Press.
