It's always nice to get some stroking, and The Scientist staff has been purring over the last couple of weeks. Last night we took home the national Gold Azbee award -- that's the top one -- for Publication Redesign in the under-80,000 category at the linkurl:American Society of Business Publication Editors' 29th Annual Awards of Excellence;http://www.asbpe.org/contest/2007/win07natdes.htm .

Congratulations go particularly to the Production team led by linkurl:Joelle Bolt;http://www.the-scientist.com/about/staffprofiles/joellebolt/, and to designer linkurl:Eric Mongeon;http://mongeonprojects.com/ and advisor John Benditt. We also placed in the top 10 for the same contest's Magazine of the Year in the under-80,000 category. The Scientist was the only science publication to appear on the list. The overall winner was linkurl:Builder;http://www.builderonline.com/ - congratulations to the team there.

We'll have a party on the back of this, but we're not getting carried away. The life science community is a demanding audience and we're always open to your suggestions for improvements.
