The Association of American Publishers (AAP) Professional & Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division has recognized Cambridge University Press with nineteen American Publishers Awards for Professional & Scholarly Excellence (PROSE Awards).

Cambridge University Press was honored with three “best of” awards, including the PROSE Award for Excellence in Humanities for the groundbreaking "The Material Life of Roman Slaves," the PROSE Award for Excellence in Physical Sciences & Mathematics for the stunning reference "Atlas of Meteorites," and the PROSE Award for Excellence in Reference Works for Jay Winter’s landmark "The Cambridge History of the First World War." The full list of winners is included below.

The winners were announced at the PROSE Awards Luncheon on February 5, 2015 at the AAP PSP Division’s Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. Mark Zadrozny, Journals Publisher, accepted the award on behalf of Cambridge University Press.

“We are deeply honored that the PROSE award judges gave so many prizes to Cambridge University Press publications,” says Beatrice Rehl, Director of Publishing, Humanities. “The awards reflect the Press’ unstinting commitment to publishing highest-quality scholarship; as well as the acumen and professionalism of our humanities, social sciences, and science editors, who first identified, then managed, these works from peer review to publication.”

The Press thanks the PROSE awards committee and applauds the individuals behind the sixteen titles recognized on Thursday—these scholars and their works have created a profound and lasting impact on the academic community.
