DOST-PNRI Bags 19 International Publication Awards

Scientists and researchers from the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (DOST-PNRI) once again garnered several awards for publications in internationally-recognized journals during this year’s DOST Intellectual Property Awards (IPA).

The National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST), the Philippines’ leading advisory and scientific recognition body, awarded 19 publications with the DOST International Publication Award – one of the awards given during the 2018 DOST IPA ceremonies held on December 18 at the Philippine International Convention Center – the highest number of international publications among DOST agencies this year.

The publications were authored by 23 PNRI scientists and researchers. In addition, two Utility Model Registration Awards were also received by PNRI researchers.

The DOST International Publication Award is given annually to DOST scientists and researchers who were able to publish their research outputs in Thomson Reuters (formerly ISI) or Scopus indexed journals in the last three years before the year of the nomination. The DOST Granted Patent and Utility Model Registration Awards are given in recognition of the efforts of DOST technology developers whose technologies have been granted patent or utility model registration in the last three (3) years preceding the award.
