Staff publications

Both professional and academic staff at UON Singapore actively produce publications that cover a diverse range of research topics. Our research-intensive team are always seeking opportunities to collaborate with individuals and organisations on key areas of interest.

With a strong focus on interdisciplinary research, many of our academics frequently step outside their own fields to work with their colleagues from different disciplines. Their efforts have produced a variety of journal articles, books and book chapters, as well as many conference papers.
