Date:11/22/2011

LONDON, November 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, a world leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and the US-UK Fulbright Commission today honor eight early career researchers in a range of academic disciplines at the 2011 UK Scopus Young Researcher Award ceremony. More than 80 university executives, policy makers, library directors and senior researchers will attend the award ceremony at the Royal Society in London, recognizing the outstanding achievements of the best UK early career researchers.

The UK Scopus Young Researcher Award is one of the initiatives the US-UK Fulbright Commission and Elsevier have developed together to foster UK research talent. The award nominees are all researchers who have published for the first time in 2008 or more recently and have an affiliation to an institution in the United Kingdom. They were assessed by a jury of 40 consisting of former Fulbright Scholars, academic journal editors and other discipline-specific experts. Their assessment was based on publication and citation information provided by SciVerse Scopus, Elsevier's abstract and citation database.The 2011 UK Scopus Young Researcher Award Winners are:Health & Medical Sciences: Lucy Asher, University of NottinghamPhysical Sciences: Farhan Feroz, University of CambridgeEngineering: Konstantinos Papadikis, University of SouthamptonSocial Sciences: Saffron O'Neill, University of East AngliaBiological Sciences: Laura Coates, University of LeedsHumanities: Matt Grove, University of LiverpoolEnvironmental Sciences: Angela Druckman, University of SurreyMathematics: Mladen Savov, University of Oxford

The jury also selected three institutions to be presented with the 2011 Scopus Fostering Young Researchers Institutional Award. The Universities of Manchester, Oxford and Southampton will receive this award for having trained 11 of the shortlisted candidates.  

Michael Arthur, Vice Chancellor of the University of Leeds, Chair of the Russell Group and Chair of the jury, co-presented the awards with Ron Mobed, Elsevier's CEO Science & Technology. "A part of the UK's strength in research is the ability of universities to attract and train excellent researchers," said Arthur. "The level of excellence of the researchers we honor here tonight is a reconfirmation of the UK's continued excellence in global research."

"This award event is about taking a step back and recognizing that UK researchers are making a significant impact in a large range of research disciplines," added Mobed. "But also to acknowledge the institutions that foster these young researchers. The pool of talent we have been able to draw from to ultimately select the eight winners was enormous, which emphasizes the UK's ability to create a competitive yet collaborative environment for researchers."

"We are very pleased that Elsevier has joined us in supporting researchers to further their careers." said Penny Egan, Executive Director of the US- UK Fulbright Commission. "These awards are not just meant to acknowledge the outstanding performance of the young winners, but should also be seen as confirmation of their ability to succeed in their chosen field." Elsevier has hosted Scopus Young Researcher Awards around the world with various partner organizations since 1995, in a concerted effort to support the growth and development of research talent globally.
