New York/Stuttgart – Thieme Publishers is proud to announce that four of its titles have been honored at the prestigious 2017 American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence (The PROSE Awards). Pediatric Neurosurgery: Tricks of the Trade won first prize in the category Textbook/Clinical Medicine, with Neuroendoscopic Surgery and Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated (2nd Edition) receiving honorable mentions in the same category. Another honorable mention went to The Surgery Journal in the category Journal/Award for Innovation category.
“We are thrilled that four of our titles have been honored by the Association of American Publishers,” said Fiona Henderson, International Marketing Director at Thieme Publishers. “With the first prize in Textbook/Clinical Medicine for Pediatric Neurosurgery: Tricks of the Trade, the jury acknowledged author Alan R. Cohen’s achievement in creating an essential pediatric neurosurgery resource that also conveys the personal wisdom gained from decades of experience. The honorable mentions for Neuroendoscopic Surgery and Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated in that same category indicate the increasing importance of excellent textbooks in the field of neuromedicine.”
Thieme’s The Surgery Journal, a highly innovative open-access journal that is pushing the boundaries of more established publishing methods, received an honorable mention in the category Journal/Award for Innovation. The Surgery Journal allows authors to submit their articles in any format they prefer (“Submit how you want”). Once their article has been peer-reviewed and accepted, they pay an APC fee that they feel is most suitable (“Pay what you want”). “The Surgery Journal bridges all surgical specialties, bringing together the expertise we have established across many journals in the field,” Daniel Schiff, Senior Vice President at Thieme Publishers said. “The honorable mention is proof that our innovative publishing approach benefits authors, readers, and the field.”
Pediatric Neurosurgery: Tricks of the Trade, winner of the 2017 PROSE Award for Textboook/Clinical Medicine, is a uniquely exacting subspecialty in which surgeons are given the extraordinary privilege of alleviating suffering for gravely ill children, and in best-case scenarios, restoring their health. Understanding the vast and complex anatomy, pathology, and pathophysiology that evolves throughout childhood presents considerable challenges. Further, the field is rapidly progressing with advancements in neurodiagnostic imaging and surgical instrumentation, as well as an expanding knowledge of the molecular and genetic bases underlying many neurosurgical disorders.
The multimedia textbook Neuroendoscopic Surgery, honorable mention at the 2017 PROSE Award for Textboook/Clinical Medicine, reflects the technological advances achieved in the last two decades in fiber optics, cold light, cameras, and endoscopic instrumentation. Written by an impressive Who's Who of international neurosurgeons, the outstanding text and videos reflect global contributions to neuroendoscopy.
Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated, 2nd Edition, honorable mention at the 2017 PROSE Award for Textboook/Clinical Medicine, is an up-to-date, beautifully illustrated text that guides readers in recognizing signs and symptoms, localizing pathology, developing a differential diagnosis, and selecting a management strategy. The content in this new edition reflects the most recent advances in neuro-ophthalmology.
The Surgery Journal (TSJ), honorable mention at the 2017 PROSE Journal Award for Innovation, is a unique, all-encompassing, open access journal for surgeons and trainee surgeons of all disciplines, as well as other medical professionals engaged with the support and surgical treatment of patients. All articles in TSJ undergo rigorous blind peer review. As an open-access publication, all articles in TSJ are made freely available for all to read and download from Thieme Connect.
