Elsevier Honored as "The Most Influential Publisher of the Last 100 Years in BioMedicine and the Life Sciences" by the Special Libraries Association

- SLA Centennial Observance Chooses 20 Elsevier Journals Among 100 Most Influential Journals in Past Century

Elsevier has been awarded the "The Most Influential Publisher of the Last 100 Years in BioMedicine and the Life Sciences" at the Special Library Association's (SLA) Centennial conference on Tuesday, June 16th in Washington DC. Twenty journals published by Elsevier, many on behalf of renowned societies, were also selected as the SLA's Top 100 Journals in Biology and Medicine.

Established in 1909 to serve librarians specialized in business, government, social agencies, and academia, the SLA is now an 11,000-member professional organization of subject specialist librarians, information managers, and publishing industry representatives. Each topical division has contributed a Centennial-themed event throughout the year. In 2008, DBIO convened an international panel of nine eminent subject experts to compile a ballot for an electronic poll of SLA members concerning the most influential publisher and the 100 most influential journals of biology and medicine over the past century of SLA's existence.

"Elsevier won as the most influential publisher of the last 100 years because time and time again it has been brave, bold, and collaborative," remarked Tony Stankus, Director, BioMedical & Life Sciences Division at the Special Libraries Association, "Whenever Elsevier saw real value, they went after it boldly. Elsevier's acquisition of the Cell Press titles and the Lancet are living proof that important titles are well worth buying and building upon. Elsevier knows how to develop a working relationship with scientific and clinical societies. It is my sincere hope that Elsevier continues to be brave, bold, and collaborative as it works with libraries in these economically challenging, yet scientifically exciting and clinically promising times."

"While Elsevier is greatly honored to be recognized by the SLA, we see the publisher's role as that of a long term supporting actor to the researchers. They are the ones who make the discoveries that advance science and bring journals to life as authors, editors, and reviewers," remarked Youngsuk "Y.S." Chi, Vice Chairman at Elsevier, who accepted the honor at the June 16th award ceremony, "Elsevier will use this honor to reaffirm our passion for excellence as we continue to serve the needs of the research community."

The DBIO 100, the 100 Most Influential Journals in Biology & Medicine over the last 100 Years as voted by the BioMedical & Life Sciences Division of the Special Libraries Association on the Occasion of its Centennial include twenty Elsevier journals, many published in partnership with prestigious societies:
