UPM Press was established to support the objective of UPM to become a leading research-based University in Malaysia. UPM Press strives towards strengthening the mind, and disseminating a high level of knowledge, following the Quran’s requirements; Tatadabbarun and Tatazakkarun. UPM Press is also committed to developing and building the country’s civilisation to a higher level, and providing overall awareness on the importance of a ‘reading culture’, books and knowledge among society.
As a Director, my major hope is that UPM Press will increase its publication rate, without neglecting its primary focus on high-quality academic publications based on research, in both Malay and English. I would like to congratulate all the staff at UPM Press who have worked hard all this while in maintaining the overall publication quality. It is hoped that these academic publication efforts can be channelled to society as a whole. I also welcome suggestions and opinions that may be a useful source of reference for the UPM Press staff as a whole.
UPM Press will continue to work towards instilling a reading culture in society by continuously producing interesting, beneficial and high-quality published works.
