About Pecah Ruyung

Pecah Ruyung derives from the Malay proverb "Kalau tak dipecahkan ruyung, manakan dapat sagunya?" which translated into English is "If the bark of the palm tree is not broken, how we can obtain the sago inside?" Ruyung is the bark or thick layer that needs to be broken before the sago inside can be obtained. Breaking the ruyung is hard work and requires much strength and energy.


A worker breaking the ruyung of the palm tree obtain the sago inside

Pecah ruyung papers refer to reflections or reports of ongoing research by graduate students or early career researchers. The research should have progressed beyond the proposal stage and some findings should be presented. However, conclusions are not required. The Pecah Ruyung category has been created so that early career researchers can be provided with constructive feedback from experienced researchers towards the refinement of their research.
