Currently, all information regarding rice research in Malaysia are scattered over many different publications, depositories and databases using various digital and analogue formats. Although several international databases of rice research are available, they are not linked to geolocation and other basic archival information. We present MyRice; a systematic Malaysian online rice knowledge database for researchers and citizen scientists to curate their data. The creation of this database will enable scientific researchers to trace back rice research information and their locality effectively. It is constructed using a digitization pipeline that allow high throughput digitization of archival data and connected with publication search engine such as Google Scholar. The main functions include bibliography, map locational visualization and media uploader to share videos and images. We believe that MyRice will contribute to the digital knowledge ecosystem among rice researchers to elevate access and become a focal point for driving Malaysian rice research towards a sulf-sufficient country on food security. The database is available http://biodiversity.fbb.utm.my/myrice/
