Information solutions provider Thomson Scientific, part of Thomson Corporation, US, has announced it will honour Australia's preeminent researchers at the National Press Club in Canberra on April 2, 2008.
The Thomson Research Award is presented based on a quantitative selection process which identifies the number of citations that an academic research paper has, thus reflecting its impact and influence on the given subject and importance attributed to it by subsequent research. Representatives from leading research and policy organisations in Australia will attend this one-of-a-kind event.
Australian Research Day will provide an opportunity for the research community, peak councils, business and industry, and government agencies to discuss moves by the new Government to overhaul innovation and research systems. The Thomson Scientific Research Awards are presented globally, with previous presentations held in Australia, Brazil, China, Denmark, India, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, Japan and China.
