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. Over the past three years (9 issues) we have published over a hundred articles, written by both Malaysian and international scientists, as well as science enthusiasts around the globe. We love many of them, but here are five of our readers’ most liked articles and why we think they are important.
Issue 10 / 2015
For a fairly young nation, we have already had several impressive scientific successes: we have sent many scientific expeditions to the wintry Antarctica, tracked down and fought the deadly Nipah virus, and even sent an angkasawan to the outer space. Plus, we have even managed to clone the thorny beauty, our beloved D24. These achievements notwithstanding, there are still much to do to become a significant contributor of scientific knowledge at the world stage.
To celebrate the 10th issue of the Scientific Malaysian Magazine, I was invited to write an article about the number 10 in view of my mathematical background. Unfortunately, I must confess that the number 10 rarely ever pops up in the mathematics I do. Thanks to this invitation, however, I have learnt that there is a lot to be discovered by following the trail of the number 10, even if the results are sometimes unexpected.
The publication of all ten issues of the Scientific Malaysian (SciMy) magazine would not have been possible without the tremendous efforts and dedication by the magazine team. In this special feature, we asked our team members to share their experiences of being part of the magazine team.
