Choice Awards Brill Publication as “Outstanding Academic Title” in 2018

Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing – 17 January 2019

Brill is proud to announce that the Yearbook of International Organizations Online has made Choice magazine’s 2018 list of Outstanding Academic Titles. Selected by Choice review editors, this awarded title is representative of Brill’s rich publishing program and accomplishments in digital publishing.

The selective Outstanding Academic Title list includes only 10% of some 6,000 works reviewed each year. The awarded titles have been selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as an important— often the first—treatment of their subject. For more information about their selection criteria, please visit the Choice website.

Yearbook of International Organizations Online

The yearbook provides a comprehensive database of intergovernmental (IGOs) and international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) worldwide. It covers over 75,000 international organizations and is updated on a regular basis by a dedicated editorial team at The Union of International Associations.

From Choice´s review of the yearbook:
“The Yearbook of International Organizations is the definitive directory of more than 75,000 governmental and non-governmental nonprofit organizations worldwide, including both active and dormant entities. […] The fact that the organizations themselves are the principal sources speaks to the credibility of the information in the profiles […] the annual subscription to the digital version is the obvious choice […] Summing Up: Highly recommended.”
- D. Ettinger, George Washington University, in Choice, vol. 55, no. 7 (March 2018).
