Press Release: Association of American Publishers Announces 38th Annual PROSE Awards Call for Entries
"Our goal, particularly with the R.R. Hawkins Award, is to choose the publication that has or will have the greatest impact on its field," said Jenkins. "Previous winners of the R.R. Hawkins Award have been truly influential works that shaped their respective industries and either broached a previously unexplored topic or shed a new light on existing research."
To qualify, books, journals and e-products submitted for this year's PROSE Awards must be published by a member company of PSP, AAP, or the Association of American University Presses (AAUP). All divisions of AAP are eligible-including the new PreK-12 Learning Group, formerly the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP)-as well as any non-AEP member publisher who participated in the 2013 AEP Awards.
Winners will be announced at the PROSE Awards Luncheon at the PSP Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. on February 6, 2014 and will be broadcast via live webcast.
