Elsevier has claimed a total of six gongs at the 2011 American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence, also known as the Prose Awards.

The Association of American Publishers-organised event saw the company take away accolades for four of its leading publications, including the healthcare-focused Diagnostic Imaging for the Emergency Physician.

Meanwhile, the SciVerse Hub and SciVerse Applications tools were given awards for best multidiscipline platform and best innovation in e-publishing, respectively.

The Prose Awards are judged by peer publishers, librarians and medical professionals with the aim of promoting the highest achievements in professional and scholarly publishing.

Suzanne BeDell, managing director for science and technology books at Elsevier, said: "The Prose Awards validate the excellence of our innovative technology platforms and book content and we are proud to be a valued contributor in the community."

This week, the company also announced the appointment of Jay Katzen as managing director of its clinical decision support group, part of the Elsevier Health Sciences division.
