Edward Elgar Publishing Short-Listed for Publishing Awards

IPA Shortlisted Signature

I am delighted to announce that Edward Elgar Publishing has again been short-listed for a number of publishing awards by the Independent Publishers’ Guild.  Last year we received the award for Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year 2014.

This year we have been short-listed for the International Achievement of the Year, the Digital Marketing Award and the Digital Publishing Award for Elgaronline, our ebook, reference and journal platform.  The awards will be announced on March 5th 2015.

Edward Elgar Publishing enhanced its Elgaronline platform in 2014 with the addition of new Research Reviews content.
