Documentation is an important component of the activities of the Academy.

Documentation following the conventions of science serves two purposes: Assessment and recognition of the knowledge contributed by the Academy to the existing corpus of knowledge. The Academy attempts to document and publish all research reports and studies that it undertakes so as to fulfil its role as a repository of scientific knowledge for the public good especially the scientific community. The Academy is now working on developing an effective system of dissemination to enable the spread of the information as far and as wide as possible.

Science Communication in Practice: A Malaysian Perspective with Global Relevance


Executive Summary – Science Outlook Report 2020

SO2020 examines the impact of STI on the economic, societal, and environmental outcomes for Malaysia since the inception of Vision 2020. The approach of this report is beyond auditing the current progress towards evaluating the steps and possible development trajectory to ensure that Malaysia is able to reach its goals and aspirations as defined in the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030 (SPV2030).

Science Outlook Report 2020

Science Outlook 2020 – Unlocking the Future (SO2020) explores STI progress in Malaysia since the declaration of Vision 2020. This report probes selected STI-related indicators and the impact of national-level programmes, frameworks, and initiatives from the year 1991 to 2020. This data is used to identify the strengths and shortfalls of the present STI ecosystem (see Chapter 6) and how the ecosystem can be stimulated to boost Malaysia’s sustainable growth into a high-income nation.

Strategic Paper on Precision Biodiversity

Being the 12th mega-biodiverse country on earth, Malaysia has a global responsibility to conserve its biodiversity. By adopting Paper on Precision Biodiversity (PBD), the country will show the world how this first-time-ever approach, can more effectively protect the planet and simultaneously deliver socio-economic returns. The vision is for Malaysia to be a nation that is informed and inspired to value and conserve bioresources while recognising the importance of investment in frontier technologies for the protection of biodiversity. Responsible and ethical stewardship of our ecosystem and establishment of a biodiversity-linked economy supported by sustainably managed biological resources will be driven by precision technologies alongside conventional approaches. Establishment of a national genome database to generate economic growth and promote human wellbeing is set to open up opportunities for translational research. Efforts powered by 4IR will also attract young tech-savvy talent and proficient human resource.

The Malaysian Code of Responsible Conduct in Research 2nd Edition

The Malaysian Code of Responsible Conduct in Research (MCRCR) is a comprehensive, robust, and contextually-appropriate guideline which is aligned to the best practices in research and accord with international standards and practice, yet congruent with local ethical and cultural milieu and legal requirements. MCRCR also draws guidance from several other well-established Codes around the world, including the Singapore Statement on Research Integrity 2010. The National Science Council has established the National Committee on Research Integrity (NCRI) to educate and nurture among the researchers, research entities/institutions, the media and the public on the MCRCR.
