The Academy of Science of Malaysia recently organised a five-day course “Training Course on Research & Development Approaches and Management for Young Scientists” from July 13-17, 2009. Professor Awang Bulgiba Awang Mahmud gave a riveting lecture on “Publishing your research” on July 16. He expounded on the whys, hows and when one should publish one’s work. The course was attended by 43 participants from Research Institutes and universities (private and public) from all over Malaysia. Prof Awang described his session as most fruitful as he had to field many questions from enthusiastic young researchers eager to learn about the art and science of publishing one’s work.
