ProQuest titles are among only 39 electronic works named to prestigious annual list

 ProQuest® Statistical Abstract of the United States and Queen Victoria’s Journals have been selected for Choice Magazine’s annual, highly acclaimed Outstanding Academic Titles list.

ProQuest’s “Stat Ab” has been heralded for rescuing and upgrading an “essential” reference from extinction, while Queen Victoria’s Journals was noted for providing “an important primary resource for researching 19th-century British political and social history.”

“These outstanding works have been selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as important – often the first – treatment of their subject,” said Choice Editor and Publisher Mark Cummings. “Outstanding Academic Titles are truly the ‘best of the best.’”


Outstanding Academic Titles are selected by the editorial staff of Choice, a critical reviews resource relied on by academic librarians for collection decisions. Less than three percent of the more than 25,000 titles submitted to Choice for review in 2013 are included on the list.
