About the Repository

UM Research Repository is the University of Malaya’s perpetual, accessible and growing collection of research work which includes peer-reviewed articles, conferences and working papers representing our rich intellectual community. It has been established to provide a deposit service for the academic staff and researchers. It is an initiative of the UM Library.

Where possible the details of each item described in the archive will include a link to a freely available electronic copy of the full text or other electronic documentation of the research output.

Benefits of depositing research

By storing and making available our research outputs via the Research Repository we will be helping the worldwide scholarly research community to discover and retrieve the work of University of Malaya researchers.
