The Pertanika Journal of Scholarly Research Reviews is the first postgraduate journal of Universiti Putra Malaysia, and primarily features review articles or summaries of students’ current state of research. These review articles consist of detailed explorations of the available literature in any fields of study. In compiling these review articles, students will be better able to acquire the knowledge and the skills necessary for both the completion of their postgraduate theses, and their future careers as researchers and educators.
PJSRR was conceived in response to the School of Graduate Studies’ efforts to provide postgraduate students with a space to publish their research and hone their research skills. In line with UPM being granted Research University status, publishing is now a prerequisite for the successful completion of students’ Master’s and PhD degrees. As such, it is vital that postgraduate students better understand the processes involved in writing and publishing research articles. The review articles published in PJSRR will enable students to achieve this, as it will alert them to the latest developments in their respective fields.
PJSRR is published in April, August and December each year, in collaboration with UPM’s Pertanika journal. All review articles are open access and available online, either as standalone PDFs, or as complete issues. Click on Archive to view the database, which contains all current and past issues of PJSRR.
