MALAYSIA RESEARCH ASSESSMENT INSTRUMENT (MYRA) RECOGNISES ACHIEVEMENTS IN RESEARCH

The objective of the audit exercise is to gain recognition for achievements made in research which will be evaluated by a panel of auditors headed by Dato' Prof. Emeritus Dr. Mohammed Yahaya and four other panel members namely Dato' Prof. Dr. Rosli Abu Bakar, Prof. Dr. Mustafa Mat Deris, Prof. Dr. Md. Razali Ayob and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Shahir Shamsir Omar.

In his opening speech, UUM Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Wira Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak said that the audit exercise is the first for UUM and that the university will provide the auditors with its full cooperation throughout the audit exercise.

"As we all know, UUM was established as an institution to generate excellence in the field of management. The many research conducted by UUM academics focus on research in the field of social science and liberal arts whereby the results and findings provide solutions for social problems and resolve fundamental issues.

"Most of the outcome of these research help by increasing knowledge and policy implications, but only little product innovation can be generated through the research conducted by lecturers at the university. In fact, the results of research submitted for publication takes a long time compared to the publications in science and technology. As such this has become a challenge for UUM, "he said.

The Vice- Chancellor further reiterated that, the number of journals in the social sciences and liberal arts indexed by Scopus and Web of Science are also quite limited compared with the number of journals in the field of science and technology.

However, he said, to strengthen the position of UUM, the university has developed the University Strategic Planning based on the criteria set by MyRA and through the planning, UUM has seen increase in performance-related research and innovation in accordance to the criteria set by MyRA.

"I look forward to the achievements and challenges faced by UUM, the MyRA audit panel is able to formulate a definition for the measurement scale used in order to ensure that all institutions of higher learning can be audited fairly.

UUM through its Centres of Authority (PTJ) will assist in the preparation of documents for the MyRA audit and all criticisms and comments made by the auditors will be a turning point in the direction of improving the data system in UUM, this in turn will make the existing data become more robust for future audits, "he said.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the MyRA Audit Panel, Dato' Prof. Emeritus Dr. Muhammad Yahaya said that UUM is the fourth university to be audited for excellence whereby evaluation is done to assess how each institution has achieved its benchmark of indicators.

According to him, a total of nine (9) components will be evaluated by MyRA namely the general information regarding the university; the quantity and quality of researchers; the quantity and quality of research; the quantity and quality of postgraduate; innovation; professional services; network and connectivity, as well as support and facilities.

Also present at the event were the Director of the Research and Innovation Management Centre (RIMC), Prof. Dr. Kalsom Kayat and senior UUM officials.
