The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) recognizes scientific excellence by electing to its membership outstanding scholars who have attained the highest level of excellence in their scientific field and have made significant contributions to the advancement of science regionally and globally. AAS Fellows are elected through a rigorous peer-review process on the basis of excellence in their publications record, innovations, leadership roles, and contribution to policy and society.
