WIREs win 3 prizes at the PROSE awards
Date:2/5/2010

Hoboken NJ February 2010 - The Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews (WIREs), the pioneering new publications launched by Wiley-Blackwell in 2009, have picked up three of the most prestigious awards in scholarly publishing at the annual PROSE awards.

The American Publishers Awards for Professional & Scholarly Excellence (PROSE Awards) named the WIREs as joint winner of this year's R.R. Hawkins Award, the association's top prize, established in 1976 to recognise outstanding scholarly works in all disciplines of the arts and sciences.

The WIREs join an illustrious list of titles that have previously received the Hawkins award, and become the first e-product to have won the top prize in the award's 34-year history.

The WIREs series also picked up the prize in the eProduct/Best Multidiscipline Platform category and received the PROSE Award for Excellence in Reference Works.

The awards were presented at the PROSE Awards Luncheon on February 4, at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. After receiving the R.R. Hawkins Award from AAP President and CEO Tom Allen, Wiley-Blackwell Vice President and Publisher Sean Pidgeon said:

"In bestowing the Hawkins award on the Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews, the PROSE judges have given a powerful vote for the importance of interdisciplinary thinking in academic research, and the critical role of scholarly publishing in assisting this collaborative endeavor."

The WIREs are unique hybrid publications that emphasise the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in research and education. Each title provides authoritative, encyclopaedic coverage of diverse scientific fields with high-quality reviews commissioned from expert contributors from across the globe. These articles are fully citable and eligible for abstracting, indexing and ISI ranking.

"The PROSE awards afforded to WIREs illustrates the exciting concepts offered by the publications," said Alexa
