NEW YORK, February 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Acclaim from the American Publishers Awards

for Professional and Scholarly Excellence 

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, congratulates the authors and editors who received four 2017 PROSE Awards and six

honorable mentions for professional and scholarly works published by Elsevier.

The 41th annual PROSE Awards, the American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence, were presented at the Association of American Publisher's Professional and Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division Annual Conference in Washington, DC. The PROSE Awards recognize the very best in professional and scholarly publishing of distinguished books, journals and electronic content, as judged by peer publishers, librarians and medical professionals. This year's competition attracted 508 entries in 53 categories.

"Without a reliable publisher as partner, there really would be no knowledge dissemination. Elsevier has proved to be an essential cornerstone to our science," said Bradford W. Hesse, co-author of Oncology Informatics: Using Health Information Technology to Improve Processes and Outcomes in Cancer, which won the Clinical Medicine category. Hesse is Chief of the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Health Communication and Informatics Research Branch (HCIRB). "News of the award was the perfect highlight for what was already an amazing journey."
