Coveted Industry Award to PLoS ONE for Publishing Innovation

PLoS ONE achieved yet another milestone yesterday by receiving an award from the ALPSP (the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers) for Publishing Innovation of the Year, 2009. The award is given in recognition of a truly innovative approach to any aspect of publication as adjudged from originality and innovative qualities, together with utility, benefit to the community and long term prospects. This prestigious industry award is therefore, a proof of the hard work of all the editors, managers, staff, authors, and reviewers! The award is a formal recognition of the fact that PLoS ONE has spearheaded a radical departure from traditional scientific publishing in a number of ways, from its pioneering editorial policies to its regular technical innovations, including the commentary and rating features available on all of its articles—in short, PLoS ONE now means 'new generation scientific publishing in a most innovative and interactive style'.
