Double recognition for research paper

UTAR Faculty of Business and Finance (FBF) academics Dr Lee Voon Hsien and Leong Lai Ying added another feather in their caps when their research paper was acknowledged as “Most Downloaded Expert Systems with Applications (ESWA) Paper (2016)” and “Ranked 8th on the Top 25 Most Downloaded Article 2017” by Elsevier (USA)’s ESWA journal.

Co-written with former FBF academic Alex Foo Tun-Lee and Prof Ooi Keng Boon of UCSI University, the paper titled “Can competitive advantage be achieved through knowledge management? A case study on SMEs” had also earned the quartet the Honourable Mention Award at the Technology Innovation and Industrial Management (TIIM) Conference 2014 previously.

Both Dr Lee and Leong extended their utmost appreciation to their co-writers for being professional and inspirational. They also dedicated their success to UTAR and expressed their pride to be affiliated with the University. The duo also attributed their success to the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) for its research grant awarded in 2013, which financed their 12-month research initiatives.
