Recently, a lecturer of UMS from the Faculty of International Finance Labuan won two world-class awards through her writing in high-impact journals.
Associate Professor Dr. Norazah Mohd Suki received the ‘Winners of the Seventh Annual Awards Excellence in Research Journal’ Award, through her journal writing entitled ‘Investigating the Measurement of Ecological Consumer Behaviour, Environmental Knowledge, Healthy Food, and Healthy Way of Life’.
Her achievement is quite remarkable as this sole Malaysian lecturer won the award along with some other lecturers from leading universities such as University of Oxford, Florida International University, University of Freiburg, Germany and National Taiwan Normal University.
The selection of award recipients by IGI Global was based on originality of research, practical research, the quality of writing, substantive and methodological research.
Dr. Norazah also brought honour to the university when her writing in the Islamic Marketing Journal was adjudged the winner of the EMERALD Awards for Excellence 2015 – Highly Commended Paper.
She received the award along with two other lecturers from Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
Grateful for all the encouragement and motivation especially from UMS Vice-Chancellor, Professor Datuk Dr. Mohd Harun Abdullah, Dr. Norazah was also determined to continue to be active in conducting research and contributes to writing in high-impact journals as her contribution to society and the country.
"Achievements and acceptance of such awards were not the main goal, but I believe this is the bonus given by Allah SWT to those who are diligent and committed to their work," she added.
“I am very grateful for this recognition and it will for sure be a morale booster for me to continue achieving excellence and contribute to this university,” said Dr. Norazah who is known to be serious but friendly. – SS (fl)
