Elsevier Journal Global Food Security Receives Honorary Mention at the 2013 PROSE Awards

February 7, 2014

AMSTERDAM, February 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

Elsevier [http://www.elsevier.com/_nocache ], a world-leading provider of scientific,
technical and medical information products and services, today announced receiving an
Honorary Mention at the 2013 PROSE Awards [http://www.proseawards.com ] for its journal
Global Food Security [http://www.journals.elsevier.com/global-food-security ] in the
category Best New Journal in Science, Technology and Medicine. The official announcement
was made at the Association of American Publishers’ (AAP) Professional and Scholarly
Publishing (PSP) Annual Conference in Washington, DC yesterday.

Helping to tackle the world’s hunger crisis and given the rapidly evolving nature of
scientific knowledge and information on global food security, in 2012 Elsevier launched
Global Food Security as a new multidisciplinary journal to cover this niche.

“I believe that recognition from the American Publishers Awards of our new Global Food
Security journal reflects two attributes,” said Editor-in-Chief Ken Cassman, University of
Nebraska at Lincoln, USA. “First, it recognizes increasing awareness of food security as
the foundation of a sustainable future for humanity in terms of economic development,
curbing population growth, improved nutrition and health, conservation of natural
resources and environmental quality, and dealing with climate change. Second, it reflects
the high quality of the authors and papers published in our first issues on these topics-a
trend the Editors and I are committed to continuing.”

Gilles Jonker, Executive Publisher at Elsevier, added, “We are very proud to be
recognized with a PROSE honorable mention in the category Best New Journal STM. It is
because of the excellent editorial team, the authors and reviewers that we are able to
make this important new Journal for this emerging research community.”

Global Food Security publishes four issues per year, which are available via
ScienceDirect. [http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/22119124 ]

Overall, six books and one journal published by Elsevier received a total of 10 Prose
Awards.
