PLOS journals sites win Interactive Media Award

As many of you will recall, in late 2012 all the PLOS journals were redesigned. Our updated sites, together with the web design agency, Digital Pulp, have been recognized with a Best in Class Award in the Interactive Media Awards (IMA) Nonprofit category.

IMA AwardTo qualify for an IMA, competing websites are scored on a 1- 100 scale using five specific criteria. Here’s a list of the different categories and our scores:

1. Content: 100
2. Feature Functionality: 99
3. Compliance & Compatibility: 95
4. Design: 94
5. Usability: 93

We’re delighted that our journals have achieved such a high standard of excellence in website design. We warmly congratulate Digital Pulp on their innovative approach to this project and thank all the PLOS staff involved for making this vision a reality.
