Introduction

Penerbit UMS, which is the Publication Unit of Universiti Malaysia Sabah, was established on March 1, 2001. The Head of Publication Unit reports directly to the Vice-Chancellor of UMS.

Sourcing and selection of manuscripts for publication are managed by a committee chaired by the Vice-Chancellor and composed of deans, directors and heads of units. In addition, each school, institute, center and unit have a permanent representative in the committee.

 

Penerbit UMS has been given the responsibility to control the quality of publication of all manuscripts approved for publication by the Publication Committee of UMS.
