Reaxys-SCI Awards

Reaxys SCI Early Career Researcher Award 2020

The SCI Giovani Board in collaboration with Elsevier announces the Reaxys SCI Early Career Researcher Award 2020, now at its sixth edition, dedicated to all SCI members who are currently PhD students or recently got their PhD. The candidates must produce a brief essay (750 - 1500 words) in which they summarize their current research activity, a potential research project or a completed work, specifying how a database like Reaxys could be (or has been) of help.

The top-three candidates will get respectively:

  • 1st prize: € 1500
  • 2nd prize: € 1000
  • 3rd prize: € 500!


Reaxys is a widely used search engine, primarily in the field of organic synthesis, and in pharmaceutical and biological chemistry. The strengths of the website are however applicable to every field of chemistry. Thus we invite young SCI members of ALL divisions to try Reaxys and apply to the award.
  • Reaxys is a subscription service and is not available in all the universities. For this reason SCI Giovani and Elsevier will give free access to all the SCI members who will apply throughout the whole application time.
  • We hope to see you all on June 9 at the new edition of the Y-RICh workshop organized by SCI Giovani (soon more information), with a delegation from Elsevier ready to illustrate the search engine and the awards, and to answer to all your questions.
  • Elsevier will host a free webinar on June 23 (10:30 AM), in which Reaxys basic and advanced features will be explained, together with some guidelines for the preparation of the application essay. Attending the webinar (about 30 minutes) is strongly suggested to propose a successful application!
