Journal wins PROSE award

Journal wins PROSE award

SoftwareX, a journal edited by David Wallom, Associate Professor & Associate Director for Innovation at the e-Research Centre, has won the prestigious Award For Innovation In Journal Publishing at the 2016 PROSE Awards. This is a particular achievement because this award is a discretionary prize which is rarely given out and is only awarded in cases where the judges overwhelmingly feel a journal is very cutting edge.

The PROSE Awards annually recognize the very best in professional and scholarly publishing by bringing attention to distinguished books, journals, and electronic content in 54 categories. Each year, publishers and authors are recognized at the PSP Annual Conference in Washington, DC, for their commitment to pioneering works of research and for contributing to the conception, production, and design of landmark works in their fields.

The PROSE Awards are sponsored by the PSP division of the Association of American Publishers. The Association represents about four hundred member organizations including major commercial, digital learning and education and professional publishers alongside independents, non-profits, university presses and scholarly societies.
