To celebrate the milestone of the 10th Issue of the Scientific Malaysian Magazine, we conducted a poll among our readers and supporters to help us pick the best of Scientific Malaysian Magazine articles.

We love many of them, but here are five of our readers’ most liked articles and why we think they are important.

These achievements notwithstanding, there are still much to do to become a significant contributor of scientific knowledge at the world stage.
