OECD Publishing, which is the publishing brand and agency of the OECD, has won the 2017 Academic and Professional Publisher Award at the London Book Fair, held at the Olympia in London on 14 March. The award, which is organised in partnership with the Publishers Association, was presented under the International Excellence Awards, with the support of Research Information, a print and online magazine from Europa Science Ltd.

For Jacks Thomas, director of the London Book Fair, the International Excellence Awards “showcase the true diversity, creativity and dedication to books and reading that define 21st century publishing.”

The judges applauded OECD Publishing for its “innovative, robust, content-specific and mission-appropriate publishing model”, as well as its “commitment to international audiences and linguistic diversity”. 

Toby Green, who as head of OECD Publishing pioneered OECD iLibrary, a platform that disseminates OECD work to academic and research institutions the world over, received the award on behalf of the organisation. “It’s a great honour, international excellence is what we strive for, and this fantastic award is recognition of the hard work and creativity of a great team at the OECD,” Mr Green said.
