Citing Malay author Sharifah Hafsah Razak: 'Sharifah Hafsah' or 'Razak'?

In general, Gaya UKM uses an authorname-date system to make citations in paragraphs. It takes a family name as authorname.

Complete name: Barack Obama
Citation in text:  Obama (2010) or (Obama 2010).

For Malay names, Gaya UKM applies a different rule compared to general citation format. The author's name is used as authorname, instead of the family name.

Complete name: Sharifah Hafsah Razak
Citation in text: Sharifah Hafsah (2009) or Sharifah Hafsah Razak (2009), instead of Razak (2009)

Reference: Panduan Penulisan Tesis Gaya UKM, page 19

Write and Graduate! Success is in your hand.
