Clarivate Analytics and Malaysia's Ministry of Education present Malaysia Research Star Awards 2018
- 25 Oct 2018

Clarivate Analytics, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, and Malaysia's Ministry of Education (MOE) have joined forces for the fourth time to recognise outstanding Malaysian researchers at the Malaysia Research Star Awards 2018.

The eight award recipients span a variety of research disciplines such as engineering, agricultural sciences, materials science, chemistry, social sciences and environment/ecology.

The Top Peer Reviewer Award and the Research and Innovation Excellence Award are two new categories introduced this year.

Award recipients for the Frontier Researcher Award are recommended based on the most number of papers they have in the specified Research Front which demonstrates their outstanding contribution to these Research Fronts. A Research Front is a group of Highly Cited Papers, referred to as 'core papers' in a specialised topic defined by a cluster analysis and is recognised as an emerging specialty research area at the frontier of scientific knowledge.

According to Clarivate Analytics Web of Science, a hot paper is defined as 'a paper published in the past two years that received a number of citations in the most recent two-month period that places it in the top 0.1 percent of papers in the same field.' Reviews that are 'hot' were determined in March 2018. The paper with the lowest average percentile is recommended as the 2018 Hot Review Paper Award winning paper. The author must also have co-authored at least one highly cited original article. This added requirement ensures that the awardee has a record of high-quality original research.

The Top Peer Reviewer Award is presented in Physical Sciences and Social Sciences. The two Top Peer Reviewer Award recipients identified are recognised for their expertise in various research areas using proprietary Publons data from Clarivate Analyics. In the research community, being asked to review a research manuscript is widely regarded as a recognition of peer esteem and prestige.

The Research and Innovation Excellence Award aims to recognise one Research University and one Non-Research University for excelling in applied research which has commercial potential based on their patents filed. They are determined by six metrics such as the number of Web of Science papers, overall Category Normalized Citation Impact1 (CNCI), industry collaboration and patent-based metrics (number of patents, number of inventions and patent strength score) derived from Derwent Innovation.

As with previous awards, the data used for Malaysia's Research Star Award 2018 is based on citations of published research papers in quality international journals as indexed in Clarivate Analytics Web of Science.

The analysis also used data based on Highly Cited Papers extracted from Clarivate Analytics Essential Science Indicators from 2013 to 2017. Highly Cited Papers constitute the top 1 percent of papers published worldwide in each of 22 broad fields and each year of coverage. More than 705 Highly Cited Papers published by Malaysian authors indexed between 2013 and 2017 qualified for the Award based on the above criteria. In order to identify the promising stars among these influential researchers, additional criteria using combinations of citations and the Category Normalized Citation Impact1 (CNCI) was applied to these individual papers to determine the award recipients.
