Elsevier congratulates its British Medical Association award winning medical authors and editors

London, September 20, 2012 - Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce that 19 of its professional and scholarly products were honored at the annual BMA Medical Book Competition ceremony in London on the 13th September 2012. A total of 681 products from various publishers were entered in this year's competition and 138 prizes were awarded with 21 first prizes, and 117 highly commended prizes. Professor Baroness Hollins, FRCPsych, FRCPCH, FRCP, President of the BMA, presented the awards at a reception at the BMA House.

Elsevier's Netter's Neurology, 2/e by Drs. H. Royden Jones, Jayashri Srinivasan, Gregory Allam, Richard Baker, edited by the Lahey Clinic won the BMA Illustrated Book Award. Its reviewer commented that, "It communicates often very difficult areas of neurology quite simply, and builds on basics to advanced understanding. I've never seen such well-thought-out and informative illustrations with such detail in another neurology book of this type. It does not take long to ascertain that this is a high quality book with not only content to a high standard but also the way it is presented to a learner. I have not seen any others which can compete."
