Nature Publishing Group’s (NPG) website www.nature.com is recognised as the Best Science Website of 2008 in the annual Webby awards. The company will receive its award at the 12th Annual Webby Awards gala in New York City in June.

The award winners were chosen by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), a global organisation of industry experts and technology innovators. .

‘Everyone at NPG is delighted that nature.com has been awarded a Webby, it's a real validation of our efforts,’ said Timo Hannay, publishing director of nature.com. ‘Our purpose as a publisher is to enable scientific and medical communication. If we can't help researchers to make the most of the web - the most powerful communication medium ever - then we wouldn’t be doing our jobs. That’s why nature.com is central to NPG's mission, and this welcome recognition will spur us on to try and achieve even more.’

Hailed as the ‘Oscars of the internet’ by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honouring excellence on the internet. ‘The Webby Awards honours the outstanding work that is setting the standards for the internet,’ said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. The 12th Annual Webby Awards received nearly 10,000 entries from over 60 countries.
