There are various questionnaires that have been translated into Bahasa Malaysia but only a small portion have been properly validated and published. Some of the questionnaires have been translated in different versions by different persons.
A quotation by Wilkin et al (1992); “In view of the difficulty that we faced in obtaining scales, authors should be encouraged by publishers to either reproduce their questionnaire in a major article on scale’s psychometric properties, or publish the name and address of the scale distributor”.
With this awareness, I initiate this database to help researchers to find the suitable questionnaires for their studies. I welcome from all individuals to contribute to this database as a pool of knowledge and update me on any of your own or your colleagues’ effort in translation and validation of questionnaire in Malaysia. Kindly email me the information.
