The top five young scientists in each category will receive a certificate of recognition with the winner given a monetary gift as well as a trip to the official award ceremony at the Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang in December.

Finalists were selected by 12 panelists, three peers from each of the four categories of entry. Applicants were evaluated based on three key criteria: number of citations and h-index, number of publications and patents based on Scopus data, as well as documented social impact.

"We are pleased to recognize up-and-coming research leaders," said Inn Beng Lee, Head of Customer Marketing for Elsevier. "The future of global scientific breakthroughs will depend on our young scientists and we are excited about recognizing those who are on the path to great success in their field."

"The award is designed to thank and encourage young researchers who have dedicated their lives to the advancement of science."
