17 September 2012 Suomen Akatemia (Academy of Finland)

The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) announced the winner of the Award for Publishing Innovation 2012 on Wednesday 12th of September in Belfry, UK. The winner of this year’s award is Peerage of Science, a new web service for submission and peer review of scientific manuscripts.

The ALPSP Award for Publishing Innovation is granted in recognition of a truly innovative approach to any aspect of publication. Applications are judged on their originality and innovative qualities, together with their utility, benefit to their community and long term prospects.

The winners in previous years have been Your Better Life Index from the OECD (2011), ChemSpider from Royal Society of Chemistry (2010), and PLoS ONE from PLoS (2009).

Peerage of Science is a community of already more than 1000 scientists from 44 countries and more than 300 scientific institutions, and a growing number of international journals, together creating better peer review. Peerage of Science aims to solve the problems of the traditional peer review system, providing more efficient, higher-quality, fair, and rewarding peer review process. Peerage of Science is free for scientists, and a subscription service for publishers.

The service was launched in November 2011, by PhD Janne-Tuomas Seppänen, Professor Mikko Mönkkönen and Professor Janne S. Kotiaho from University of Jyväskylä, Finland.
