2013 Silver Award: Educational Leadership, May 2013 “The Faces of Poverty”

Scholarly/Technical/Scientific Journal
Educational Leadership, May 2013 "The Faces of Poverty"

Judge’s Comments: EL is a perennial winner in this category, and justifiably so. The editors do a great job in packaging a theme with great supportive and readable articles. The journal also strikes a nice advertising:copy balance. There is little consistency in the layout, however, and at times you get the feeling that they are filling pages with design elements. Given that its frequency is nine times a year, it would be nice to see a bit more substantial writing.

2013 Bronze Award: Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

Scholarly/Technical/Scientific Journal
Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

Judge’s Comments: JAND must find a way to get away from the dirty paper stock that has enough see-through to be annoying. Also that dense of copy on that stock makes it hard to read. Otherwise, it’s a fine journal that serves its membership, and I like that its cover is interesting and modern, in contrast to the more traditional layout inside of a research journal

2012 Bronze Award: American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics – April 2012 Supplement

Scholarly/Technical/Scientific Journal

American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics - April 2012 Supplement

Judge’s Comments: Including the supplement actually hurt this entry this year, especially as it appears in the front of the book. But like the silver winner, I like that they are getting more bold with the use of photography, particularly color. And the the non supplement part of the magazine is organized nicely.
