“The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), is pleased to announce both shortlists for the two ALPSP Awards 2023.
New for this year, the ALPSP Impact Award celebrates significant initiatives, projects or collaborations within scholarly communication and academic research that are making a positive difference. The well-established ALPSP Award for Innovation in Publishing, recognises any new development, product, service, launch or project which is both innovative and of significant value to scholarly communication.
The ALPSP Impact Award finalists for 2023:
Africa Commons: As the global librarian community works to decolonize library collections, Africa Commons is one resource to help close the representation gap.
eLife: A new publishing model has been officially launched by eLife, eliminating binary accept/reject decisions after peer review and instead focusing on providing quality public reviews and assessments.
IOP Publishing (IOPP): The first society publisher to combine double anonymous peer review and transparent peer review.
Original Études for the Developing Conductor: A peer-reviewed, freely-available, Creative Commons licensed collection of supplemental études designed to enhance contemporary conducting pedagogy by amplifying the voices of composers from historically excluded groups.
