The Scopus Awards ceremony was held at Grand Hotel Europe, on the 14th of May, 2013 and preceded by the International Congress. The Congress became the meeting-point for multi-subject discussion on further perspectives of science and technologies and higher education developments in Russia. Congress participants and speakers presented research, high education and business spheres and included Vladimir Kvardakov (Deputy Chairman of RFBR), Richard Burger (Research & Innovation Councilor, Delegation of EU to Russia), Andrey Polyakov (Deputy Director of Department, Russian Ministry of Education and Science) and Youngsuk "YS" Chi (Chairman, Elsevier), and many other specialists in science, education and business.
Based on Scopus data, the selection criteria consist of h-index scores, the number of publications and citations as well as academic recognition at national level. The awards were presented by Mr. Andrey Polyakov, Ministry of Science and Education of Russia, Youngsuk "YS" Chi, Chairman of Elsevier and Dr. Igor Osipov, Elsevier's Regional Director for Russia and Belarus.
