The 686 members of the BioMedical & Life Sciences Division of the Special Libraries Association have chosen the journal Nature as ‘journal of the century’.

Accepting the award on behalf of Nature, senior editor Alex Witze said, 'It means a great deal to us to receive this accolade from the international library community. You are our valued customers and essential partners in ensuring that researchers worldwide have access to Nature. We look forward to the next 100 years.'

Runners-up to the award included the New England Journal of Medicine, Science, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), and The Lancet.

The division also recently conducted a poll of its members to identify the 100 most influential journals of biology and medicine over the last 100 years. The list is available on the SLA website (see link below).
