Research Data Management

The Unit manages the process of collecting, processing, reporting and verifying research data of the university.

 One of the main tasks is to manage the data for the Malaysian Research Assessment (MyRA) used by the Ministry of Education (MoE) to evaluate the performance of research institutions as well as being an Return on Investment (RoI) indicator for research funding. The collection process of MyRA data involves input from each faculty, Centres of Excellence (CoEs) and other sources after each quarter of the year.

  The Unit is also responsible to verify and validate each data input through the masterlist and evidence provided by each MyRA data source. This step is taken to ensure authentic and correct data is reported in order to boost UiTM’s MyRA score. Other research data managed by the Unit includes MyMoheS, Mastic, CAP Achievement Data (PSPTN), Collaboration Data, QS Ranking, QS Star Rating, Swa-accreditation and others.

  Every year, the Unit provides reports for these data for the Laporan Jemaah Menteri and UiTM Annual Report.
