A good turnout on a Saturday morning at the Social Sciences Interactive Room.

Located at Social Sciences Interactive Room, the 5th ISDEV-DBP Book Writing Workshop was successfully held on a Saturday, 20 September 2014. It was part of the endeavours in realising the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) bertween ISDEV and DBP that was been signed during the Vice-Chancellor's Annual Message on 5th January 2012. The workshop was organized by Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (DBP) in collaboration with ISDEV.

The workshop was led by DBP Editor, Puan Rokiah and was held in an informal and relaxed manner. Each author was required to make an appointment with their own Editor to meet and discuss further on the progress of their manuscripts.It is hoped that the discussion would benefit the development of their writings.

The main essence of this workshop was to get to know each author's respective editors and do a review of the book's manuscript together. The workshop provided the best possible avenue and opportunity for ISDEV budding authors to attain tips and guidance in their writing.

With the 12 books that were officially launched in early 2014, ISDEV is confident of producing more scholarly books for the market with a target of not only 20 books but 46 books to be published by DBP early next year, in sha Allah.
