ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, July 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced the launch of the Quiz for Science series for 30 leading universities and institutions in Pakistan, recognizing local research efforts from across the country.

"Elsevier is committed to promoting scientific excellence around the world and Quiz for Science is a step in that direction, especially to highlight the efforts of the research community in Pakistan," said Saurabh Sharma, Elsevier's Regional Director for its Science & Technology division in South Asia. "I'm confident that Quiz for Science will attract an overwhelming level of participation and support from within the community which will further support research advancement in Pakistan."

To participate in the quiz, each applicant must register and answer 20 questions in the subject area of their specialization. The majority of the questions contained in the quiz are based on journal articles published by Pakistani researchers over the last few years.

The initial phase of the quiz runs from 4 July to 31 October 2013. For more information go to http://www.QuizforScience.com/Pakistan.
