Awards play a central role in the research community by recognizing researchers for the valuable contributions they make to the world of discovery. In September 2013, we launched a new portal to showcase research awards supported by Elsevier, along with information about how to apply or nominate recipients. Many of these awards are made possible by societies and other partnering organizations. Elsevier has rewarded hundreds of outstanding academics across the world, and today presents about 300 awards a year with grants ranging from $100 to $25,000.
