After using Scopus for the past two years, now Universiti Teknologi MARA will be able to find their articles through ISI Thomson Reuters. Currently UiTM (a Malaysian IPTA) trails behind other Malaysian IPTAs such as UM, USM, UPM, UKM , UTM . But , we are working very hard to write a lot of quality articles and achieve the RU status in 2010.

For all users from Shah Alam - ISI Thomson can be access via http://ezaccess.library.uitm.edu.my/ - with the User ID (salam) password(salam2009)

Please call me if you have problems/on how to access ISI Thomson ----03-5543 5770 (Khasiah)
