Sydney, September 18, 2014 Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and the Australasian Research Management Society (ARMS), recognized the academic research achievements of 17 young scientists at the 5th Scopus Young Researcher of the Year Awards.
