The Malaysian Code of Responsible Conduct in Research (MCRCR)

The National Science Council, in collaboration with MIGHT, has recently launched the The Malaysian Code of Responsible Conduct in Research (MCRCR). MCRCR outlines the principles of responsible conduct in research, and the practice. Quoting Prof. Tan Sri Dr. Zakri Abdul Hamid, FASc in his foreword: “adherence and compliance with the Code will ensure that research in Malaysia will be pursued earnestly and honestly, with integrity and accountability. It denotes that our researchers and research entities – universities, research institutes, laboratories, research programmes – embrace the accepted code of conduct so crucial in ensuring that research is being pursued vigorously and with propriety. This will boost our Science inherently and internationally.”
