Date:9/18/2014

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.

The award ceremony, held earlier today at the National Convention Centre and in conjunction with the ARMS 2014 annual conference, was attended by guests representing Australia's and New Zealand's scientific community.
