2022 ALPSP Awards winners announced -

The winners of the 2022 ALPSP Awards were announced at the Conference Dinner on September 15. The ALPSP Council presented this year’s award to Lorraine Estelle.

Lorraine has contributed significantly to the publishing and wider information communities over the last 20 years. She began her career in publishing before moving to lead the Jisc Collections Team in 2002, becoming CEO when it became a standalone organization in 2006.

At Jisc she spearheaded the procurement of digital content for education and research in the UK. Her team created the Journals Usage Statistics Portal (JUSP) which libraries have found so valuable in evaluating their usage metrics. In 2015 Lorraine moved to COUNTER, bringing with her a deep understanding of the challenges faced by librarians and data analysts from her experience with setting up JUSP. Under her guidance, COUNTER developed into the organization it is today, setting the standard for usage data which is relied upon by libraries and publishers across the globe.

Charlesworth Gateway and Gigabyte have been named the winners of the ALPSP Awards for Innovation in Publishing 2022. The announcement was made by David Sommer, Chair of the Judging Panel.

Gateway provides a solution to a pain-point shared by both publishers and Chinese authors – how to communicate quickly and effectively with each other throughout the submission workflow and beyond. Gateway improves author experience by facilitating speedy communication between editors and their authors/reviewers direct to their personal mobile devices, creating a 24/7 two-way conversation.

GigaByte provides a way to rapidly and cost-effectively share research, making the scientific process more inclusive and accessible to the broader community. It uses an exclusively XML-based publishing system that automates the production process and makes it effortless to change views, languages and embed interactive content. Enabling readers to directly interact with the underlying data and software allows immediate use of published research, improves reproducibility, and increases trust.
