Four Project MUSE journals are recipients of awards from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ), presented during the 2021 Modern Language Association (MLA) meeting earlier this month. Three of the winners are Johns Hopkins University Press titles and one is from Duke University Press.
A new category was introduced, Best Digital Feature, which recognizes excellence and/or innovation that draws on the particular affordances of digital publishing and may consider a single article, a recurrent feature, or a design innovation. Two MUSE journals shared the inaugural award: Modernism/modernity for its Print Plus offerings, and Meridians: feminism, race, transnationalism for its “On the Line” feature.
Best Public Intellectual Special Issue, which recognizes an issue that reaches beyond academe to connect with a popular audience in terms of accessible language and attractive presentation, seeking to achieve the democratic mission of higher education, went to Perspectives in Biology and Medicine, vol. 63, no. 1, a special issue on the ground-breaking genetic engineering technique CRISPR.
Best Special Issue went to American Quarterly, vol. 71, no. 3, “Origins of Biopolitics in the Americas.”
The Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) serves member-editors and other constituencies interested in scholarly journal publishing by providing information about current events, ongoing projects and resources, and forums for the discussion of topics relevant to journal editing and publishing.
