LONDON, Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Elsevier, a global information analytics business specializing in science and health, and its authors had another strong showing at the British Medical Association's (BMA) annual BMA Medical Book Awards ceremony, winning six of the 20 categories and three BMA Special Prizes.
A panel of 400 judges reviewed the 600 titles submitted to the BMA from publishers around the globe. A total of 41 Elsevier professional and scholarly products were honored. The three BMA Special Prizes are:
- BMA Student Textbook of the Year (see Innes et al., in Medicine category below);
- BMA Presidents Choice Award (Wilkinson & Savulescu, Ethics, Conflict and Medical Treatment for Children, 1e); and
- BMA Medical Book of the Year (see Keystone in Medicine category below).
"We are truly honored to be amongst the esteemed groups of editors who have been recipients of this award in the past," said Dr. Phyllis E. Kozarsky, co-editor for Elsevier's Travel Medicine and Professor Emerita, Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Disease, Emory University, Atlanta, GA, USA. "Travel medicine is a relatively new specialty, encompassing all of internal medicine, and has reached its goal of moving from merely practice guided by expert opinion, to one with a strong scientific foundation, which is well documented by this text."
"We are thankful to the Elsevier team as well as to our senior editor, Dr. Jay Keystone, who recently passed away and worked tirelessly with us through this 4th edition," said co-editor Dr. Bradley A. Connor, Clinical Professor of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Weill Medical College of Cornell University; Medical Director, The New York Center for Travel and Tropical Medicine; and President, International Society of Travel Medicine.
