The Professional and Scholarly Excellence (PROSE) Awards are awarded annually by the Professional and Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division of the Association of American Publishers (AAP), and recognize the very best in professional and scholarly

publishing by bringing attention to distinguished books, journals, and electronic content in over 40 categories.  

Judged by peer publishers, librarians, and medical professionals since 1976, the PROSE Awards are extraordinary for their breadth and depth.

Each year, publishers and authors are recognized at the PSP Annual Conference in Washington, D.C., for their commitment to pioneering works of research and for contributing to the conception, production, and design of landmark works in their

fields. The R. R. Hawkins Award, presented to the most outstanding work among the publications selected, has been given to more than 30 works since its inception. Indeed, winners represent a broad range of disciplines: they have included Three

Thousand Years of Chinese Painting (Yale University Press), Atlas of Clinical Gross Anatomy (Elsevier), and The Dream of the Poem (Princeton University Press). The 2008 R.R. Hawkins Award was presented to Harvard University Press for "The

Race Between Education and Technology" by Claudia Goldin and Lawrence F. Katz. The Hawkins was presented at a special Awards Luncheon on February 5, 2009 by Priscilla Hawkins Burns, daughter of Reginald Robert Hawkins, the former head of the

Science and Technology Division of the New York Public Library and Award namesake.

This year's awards planning committee has undertaken a number of changes to strengthen the level of participation among member publishers and the representation of published projects, especially journals and electronic publications.
