Elsevier And NASI Honor Promising Young Scientists In India For Their Excellence In Academic Research

NEW DELHI, August 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Nine young scientists in India announced as winners of NASI-Scopus Young Scientist Awards

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and the National Academy of Sciences, India (NASI) honor the academic research achievement of nine young scientists at the 7 th NASI-Scopus Young Scientist Awards.

The ceremony, held yesterday at The Park Hotel, New Delhi, was attended by more than 150 guests representing India's top scientific fraternity, including Shri S. Jaipal Reddy, Honorable Minister of Science & Technology of the Ministry of Earth Sciences India, who presented the awards.

Recognizing India's increasing contribution to world science, Elsevier first launched the Scopus Young Scientist Awards in 2006 to honor the talent, knowledge and expertise of India's early career researchers.

Elsevier's collaboration with NASI began in 2009 when the award was officially institutionalized within the Indian scientific community. The award honors researchers who are building their careers in academic research and is designed to help them gain recognition of their work.

Into the seventh year, the Scopus Young Scientist Awards attracted more than 600 applications from multiple premier research institutions from across the country. Applications were judged by a distinguished panel of 37 subject matter experts from India's academic community. The jury looked at: the quality and number of publications, fellowships of academies, awards and grants received, relevance of the scientific work and its outcome, and the overall presentation and discussion at the in person meeting. Special consideration was also given to novel ideas and innovations which have potential for future research and commercial application.

The nine selected winners represent academic research excellence in nine different fields of science which will help drive innovation and development at a national level.
