Publons is a source that researchers, reviewers, academicians and Professors use to keep track of their research accomplishments in their respective areas of expertise. The Global Peer Review Awards are unique in recognizing and rewarding cross-published papers worldwide. The awards honor the ‘best in class’ peer reviews over the previous 12 months, in each of the following categories:
- Top 1% of reviewers in their field, measured by 22 individual Web of Science Essential Science Indicator (ESI) research categories
- Excellent reviewers, as rated by journal editors on Publons
- Top handling editors by quantity
Dr. Anand Nayyar said: “Recently, we have seen Artificial Intelligence, IoT and Deep Learning dominating the world and making our lives smarter and more intelligent. A new revolution of various computer science disciplines is coming, as robotics are playing more important parts in our lives. With Chatbots, Drones, IoT and Industry 4.0, almost everything is becoming highly automated. Computer science in Vietnam has already been significantly impacted, with more to come in the near future. This country is especially focusing on startups in IT and Computer Science and DTU is adapting its computer science curricula to accelerate problem-solving expertise to be industry ready. As a result, I now envisage a bright, shining future for computer science in Vietnam.”
