Professor Ir Dr Mohd Sapuan Salit has received an award Citation of Excellence 2017 from Emerald Publishing, Bradford, United Kingdom. The award was presented by Mr Elvin Cheah, Business Manager, East Asia, Emerald Publishing in conference dinner during the Wood and Biofiber International Conference (WOBIC2017), at Hotel Bangi-Putrajaya, Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor, on the 21st November 2017.
Each year Emerald Group Publishing awards certificates to highly cited papers in the areas of Marketing, Finance, Business Management, Economics, Accounting and Business Management.
The selection process made by Emerald Publishing editorial experts is based initially on the citations being given to papers published in a previous year (in this case 2014), but the judging panel also take into account the content of the papers themselves in terms of novelty, inter-disciplinary interest and relevancy in today’s world. While high academic and research standards are a pre-requisite, these selections are of course ultimately subjective, but they are also a reflection of the high quality of work published in 2014.
The award was based on his paper written with his co-worker Dr Faris Al-Oqla titled Natural fibre reinforced polymer composites in industrial applications: Feasibility of date palm fibers for sustainable automotive industry published in Journal of Cleaner Production.
