The International Journal of Asia Pacific Studies (IJAPS) is once again selected as the recipient of the CRÈME award for year 2019, accorded by the Ministry of Education Malaysia.
The award was first introduced in 2015 under CREAM (which has now been rebranded to CRÈME) as a recognition to highly performing scholarly journals in the country. It is also an incentive to promote continued excellence in research and publications, maintaining visibility in major databases, and attracting top researchers to showcase their breakthrough findings.
The award ceremony was held on 5 November 2019 at Zenith Hotel, Putrajaya. IJAPS was represented by Associate Editor, Dr. Grace V.S. Chin.
This is the third time IJAPS given the award, after winning it in 2015 and 2016.
The journal and the publisher, Penerbit Universiti Sains Malaysia are honoured with this recognition.
