Abstract: Scientific writing is one of the utmost important thing in bench marking a postgraduate’s quality as an academic. This is where a good supervision plays its role in ensuring the success of this capability. Students regard their supervisor as the main source of information as well as mentors and role models. However if there is no mutual respect between supervisor and student, the outcome will not be that great either. Supervisor also needs to cultivate the principality of honesty and truthfulness in every student while conducting their research. There are four crucial research etiquette that students need to abide by which are confidentiality, writing, communication and on research itself. The achievement of a successful research supervision and a good relationship between a supervisor and student relies on four fundamental factors namely gender, citizenship, age and academic discipline. Based on the survey results, it was visible that students from different fields have different needs especially in requiring competent facilities and equipments in executing their research which shows a very high percentage agreeing to this of students from pure science background compared to students from social science background. Finally, there are a number of strategies that can be adopted by students to publish high quality writings such as mastering the English language and following the important writing steps meticulously. Most prestige international journals require the submitted articles to be written in English language and by following all the important writing steps, it will ensure that all the vital elements in a high quality writing have already been included.
