The Biologist shortlisted for publishing award
The Biologist won Best Design at the awards last year, and was shortlisted for Best Magazine. This year the magazine itself is shortlisted in the Professional Magazine category. Over the past year the magazine has secured interviews with high-profile scientists like Professor Richard Dawkins, while its feature on the problems with urban beekeeping attracted widespread media coverage.
In the next issue, due out in December, managing editor Tom Ireland talks to Professor Jane Francis, palaeobotanist and the new director of the British Antarctic Survey.
