After only a decade of its establishment, USIM Publisher is currently paving the way to be amongst the leading academic publishers in the country. From its humble beginning, USIM Publisher has since strived to make an impact on the academic publication scene through publishing books in specialized niche areas, which are unique and reflective of the University’s philosophy.
After going through several phases of restructuring to improve its functions and effectiveness as an academic publisher, it was finally in 2010 that USIM Publisher was recognized as an independent entity that is responsible for managing the publication and sales of books. In addition, it also organizes workshops, short courses, and conduct promotional activities periodically.
With more than 250 titles published thus far in the forms of academic books, general books, commemorative and coffee table books, special publications, textbooks and learning modules, USIM Publisher is committed to continue its reputation as a publisher of quality books that will make its impact on society.
USIM Publisher focuses primarily on publishing unique and specialized books in the field of Islamic Science; an integrated interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach to academic disciplines including, but not limited to, the social sciences, economics and Islamic finance, Syariah and law, Quranic and Sunnah Studies, medicine and health as well as science and technology.
At the same time, USIM Publisher participates actively in exhibitions and sale activities to promote its books not only independently, but also under the banner of MAPIM (Malaysian Council of Academic Publishing) both at the national and international scenes. These include participation in annual national exhibitions such as the Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair (KLIBF), periodic book exhibitions in local universities in Malaysia, as well as at international book festivals in Tokyo, Frankfurt, Brunei and Jakarta.
