RSC Project Prospect scoops prestigious award

RSC Project Prospect had been named as the 2007 winner of the ALPSP/Charlesworth Award for Publishing Innovation.

In making the award, which recognises a significantly innovative approach to any aspect of scholarly publication, the judges said: The clear winner of this years award was RSC Project Prospect from the Royal Society of Chemistry. This project sees the introduction of semantics into chemical science publishing. RSC Project Prospect journals incorporate standard metadata within the full text of their articles and combine this with an elegant and intuitive on screen manifestation of the advantages of including this metadata. As a result, sophisticated and effective searching of the literature is greatly improved and the value gained from reading each article is significantly enhanced. RSC Project Prospect is delightfully simple to use and its benefits to authors and readers are immediately obvious.

Fifteen applications were received, from which a shortlist of four was selected to give a presentation to the judges. The panel considered the originality and innovative qualities of each, together with their utility and benefit to their community and long term development prospects.

This is the first time that RSC Publishing has received the award for publishing innovation.

Receiving the award at the ALPSP Annual Dinner in London on September 13th, project manager Richard Kidd declared: RSC Publishing is proud to win the 2007 award, which is great recognition for the work our publishing staff and academic partners have put into the development and evolution of RSC Project Prospect. It demonstrates that the addition and application of standard data and terminology can add real value and increase scientific accessibility within the published literature. As a learned society publisher, the RSC is actively exploring the use and application of structured science in published research, to enhance the reader experience.
