      Research outputin Malaysia is shown through publications, funding, intellectual property and knowledge transfer. This paper studies the issues of translating knowledge of social science and humanities research into beneficial products. Data is gathered from primary and secondary sources. The findings show slower output and fair amount of publications, reasonable funding for research, lack of quantified knowledge translation between universities and industry, and relatively new research culture. Conclusively, more effort is needed to translate research into practice for social science and humanities research in Malaysia.2398-4295 © 2016. The Authors.
