The International Conference on Journal Citation Systems in Asia Pacific Countries and Launching of MyCite

 22/05/2012 - 22/05/2012

 Pan Pacific KLIA Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Background of Conference
Enhancing and upholding the quality of scholarly journal publications is very significant in today’s times. Scholarly journal publication not only showcases the scholarly works of a country but also communicates new research done in various fields. With the widespread of ICT, the scholarly publications of a country are able to be shared, used and cited. In order to help monitor and maintain the quality of scholarly journals, a monitoring mechanism for quality and ranking of journals, through the calculation of journal impact and citation, must be developed. This monitoring system is a journal citation index. As such, a platform must be created to enable all the Asia Pacific countries to come together to share their experiences, ideas and challenges faced in the efforts to develop a citation indexing system in their respective countries. This is in line with the Ministry of Higher Education’s direction towards elevating the scholarly publications in Malaysia especially scholarly journal publications.

This conference, which also commemorates the launching of MyCite or Malaysian Citation Index, will provide an opportunity to all journal publishers, academics and researchers to present their findings and share their experiences on the subject of journal citation systems as well as establish a network for future collaboration in this area.
