A total of 122 articles were reviewed.Out of this figure, 41.4% were the works of UUM lecturers while the remaining numbers were produced by authors from other institutions.Diversification of contributors was also apparent with authors coming from many different countries such as United Kingdom, New Zealand, Iran, Singapore and Jordan, just to name a few.Compositions of author are also varied.
