The Ascendens Asia Journal of Multidisciplinary Research Abstracts (AAJMRA) is a collection of abstracts of research papers presented during Multidisciplinary Research Fests (MRFs), Joint Multidisciplinary Research Conferences (JMRCs), and Joint Multidisciplinary Conferences Plus (JRMCs+) mainly organised by Ascendens Asia Singapore in collaboration with various institutions and learned societies. MRFs, JMRCs, and JMRCs+ provide opportunities for collaboration with a common prime objective of creating platforms for students, faculty, staff, and researchers-alike from different institutions to interrelate/interact with their counterparts. MRFs, JMRCs, and JMRCs+ are expected to aide and promote personality development and critical thinking as participants engage themselves in constructive discussions with other participating researchers. All full papers of researches included in the AAMJRA are equally given the opportunity to go through similarity index tests and double-blind peer reviews for inclusion in the Ascendens Asia Journal of Multidisciplinary Research (AAJMR).

AAJMRAs are made available complimentary and for open access by Ascendens Asia Singapore. For more information, please contact
