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.

Lessons from Sungai Kim Kim, Pasir Gudang

The national headlines of toxic gas poisoning incidents affecting thousands of innocent schoolchildren in Pasir Gudang, not once but twice, back to back in March and June of 2019, shocked the Malaysian public. Calls from many quarters demanded immediate action by the government to find and close down the source of the gases, to treat the affected victims, to catch and charge the culprits, and to stop recurrence of the tragedy in the future. The Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) Task Force on Sungai Kim Kim and Pasir Gudang Incidents was formed with the support of the Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC) to investigate the source of the toxic gases and to recommend steps to prevent recurrence in the future.
