The best journal launched in the last one to three years was BMJ Case Reports, according to judges at this year’s ALPSP awards, who commented that ‘a successful and innovative publishing model has been created by exploiting material traditionally avoided by mainstream journals.’

Also in the awards, ChemSpider, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, picked up the award for publishing innovation and CRC Press (Taylor & Francis) received the award for best ebook platform for CRCnetBASE.

Richard Gedye of Oxford University Press received the organisation’s Award for Contribution to Scholarly Publishing. ‘Throughout his long and distinguished career, has made an enormous contribution to industry bodies including ALPSP, UKSG and the Counter project,’ said the selection committee.

The awards were announced at the ALPSP International Conference held in September.
