Asian Scientist Magazine Announces Its International Advisory Committee

The committee will help the magazine ensure that it continues to be diverse and equitable in its selection process as it curates the list of 100 outstanding scientists in Asia.

Asian Scientist Magazine (Nov. 21, 2023) Asian Scientist Magazine is proud to announce its Asian Scientist 100 International Advisory Committee for 2023-24. The advisory committee is made up of scientists who are leading their fields and mentoring future generations of researchers in Asia.

As the magazine enters its 9th year of carefully curating a list of Asia’s 100 brightest researchers and industry leaders in STEM, the advisory committee will have the privilege to nominate researchers, review the list before its public release and offer feedback. The committee will help the magazine ensure that it continues to be diverse and equitable in its selection process as it highlights the best scientific minds in Asia.

To be included in the AS100 list, honorees must have garnered a national or international award in 2023. The list also recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions in their field or showcased exemplary leadership in STEM academia or industry in Asia.

“We take our Asian Scientist 100 list seriously and are meticulous in our selection process because this list celebrates the finest researchers and reflect their diversity in Asia. We are grateful to have the support of our international advisory committee in this endeavour,” said Juliana Chan, CEO, Wildtype Media Group, which publishes Asian Scientist Magazine.
