Below is the list of best universities in Malaysia ranked based on their research performance in Literature. A graph of 345 citations received by 486 academic papers made by 5 universities in Malaysia was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
