ANZ Scopus Researcher Awards 2022

About the award: Have you done anything in the last ten years that you want to be recognized for? Send in your application right away; see the general requirements and exclusions below.

The ANZ Scopus Researcher Awards is a component of Elsevier’s global project to push the frontiers of knowledge across a wide range of fields, which was initially introduced in 2010.

The ANZ Scopus Researcher Awards honor excellent researchers whose work integrates a wide range of expertise and academic specialties to significantly advance humanities-beneficial research.

The award categories all uphold the values of equality, diversity, and inclusion, as well as research integrity.

This year’s awards are based on a novel and improved approach. While Scopus will continue to be used to provide a data-informed view of a researcher’s contributions.

According to Scopus they are introducing the Personal Story to enable researchers to share their motivations and research outcomes, and tell the story behind the data that will resonate with the general public.

Additionally, public content, such as research data, code, social media, films, and other types of media, can be shared by applicants. The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment, which outlines international best practices, is fully in line with this new technique.

Categories of the Award

This year in 2022 Scopus has defined three categories of the award and accepting applications.

  1. Excellence in Research Impacting a Sustainable Future
  2. Excellence in Women in Research Award
  3. Excellence in Outstanding Early Career Research

For each of the awards categories, Scopus aims to recognize researchers who:

  • Show both a strong presence in the international publication and citation data, as well as present an inspiring personal story. As in international best practice in research assessment, a researcher cannot compensate for a weak presence in the data by their personal story alone, or for a weak personal story by a few highly cited publications.
  • Reflect the values of equality, diversity, and inclusion in their work and ethos, and champion the removal of barriers to true equality where they may be found.
  • Champion research that is conducted with integrity, and that embodies this goal across their professional conduct, for instance in terms of rigor, transparency, communication, and/or in the involvement of participants.
