YOUR Award-Winning Journal: PRS


I am proud to announce that Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has taken home 6 impressive publishing awards for 2014 initiatives, video, content, and for the Journal itself.

PRS, PRS Global Open, and all of our social media outlets are true group efforts! I am so thankful to work with such an amazing group of people in the PRS and PRS Global Open Editorial Offices- Aaron Weinstein, Ed Tynan, I. Donnell Moore, Dustin Lang, and BethAnn Harper- as well as at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and at Wolters Kluwer Health. I am also thrilled and thankful to have such energized plastic surgeons and affiliated specialists from all stages in their careers as authors, peer-reviewers, social media engagers, video participants, and readers pushing us to innovate at every turn.

So, we share these awards not only to the people named on the certificates, but to each and every person who helped on these projects and work on PRS and PRS Global Open every day.

All of these awards serve as a testament to our incredible teams at WKH, ASPS, and in the Editorial Office. But, they also speak volumes about you: our vested authors and readers, our amazing editorial board, our stalwart peer reviewers, our network of “PRS Ambassadors” who share plastic surgery news, research, and stories via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, as well as in lecture halls, conference rooms, clinics, elevators and more.

Thank you so much, and many, many congratulations on YOUR award-winning Journal: Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
