Remediation Honored at 2016 APEX Awards

Award Winning Article Online


Remediation Journal has been honored by industry peers with an Award for Publication Excellence at the 2016 APEX Awards.

The winning article, Integrating the Social Dimension in Remediation Decision-Making: State of the Practice and Way Forward, which was published in the Winter 2015 issue, may be the most authoritative publication on the social aspect of sustainable remediation. The article focuses on three areas: 1) the current assessment techniques for the social aspect of remediation; 2) qualitative and quantitative methodologies to evaluate societal impacts; and, 3) a summary of research findings that discusses the challenges, obstacles, and a proposed path forward for incorporating social issues into cleanups. The article provides unique insight into the social aspects of sustainable remediation.

The APEX Awards for Publication Excellence is an annual competition for publishers, editors, writers and designers who create print, Web, electronic and social media. Communications Concepts, Inc. sponsors the APEX Awards, and advises professionals who write, edit and manage business communications, on best strategies and practices. Concepts publishes business communication reports, including Writer's Web Watch, an e-report for professional communicators, and special reports on topics such as corporate writing and Web publishing.

In the Twenty-eighth Annual APEX Awards, over 1,600 entries were evaluated and awards were given in 100 individual areas of excellence, within 11 main categories including: newsletters; magazines, journals and tabloids; annual reports; print media; electronic media; social media; websites; campaigns, programs and plans; writing; design and illustration; and one-of-a-kind publications.

According to the APEX 2016 judges, “The awards were based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and the success of the entry in achieving overall communications effectiveness and excellence.”
