The world of scholarly publishing continues to change rapidly, both in terms of technology and market behaviour. New challenges offer new opportunities and we have seen some incredible advances in recent years which have changed the face of the industry. The ALPSP Awards seek to recognise some of the best innovators in our industry. 

The finalists will be given the opportunity to showcase their applications in a quick fire session at the ALPSP Conference. The winners will then be announced at the Conference Awards Dinner on Thursday 10 September.

The Awards are open to any new development, product, service, launch or project which is both innovative and of significant value to scholarly communication. The winner(s) must demonstrate excellence in terms of originality and innovation, significance and value to the community, utility and long-term viability.

Your submission can be anything from a new tool or service for researchers; a new resource, journal, book or other form of publication; a new workflow or process; to technological innovation. It can relate to any part of the scholarly and academic publishing industry but the application must define clearly the benefit and advances it represents in its sector.
