Nature has won the prestigious Príncipe de Asturias Award, established by His Royal Highness the Prince of Asturias, heir to the throne of Spain.
The award is the best-known cultural prize in the Spanish-speaking community. The awards honour individuals, groups or institutions whose creative work or research represent a significant contribution to universal culture in the scientific, technical, cultural, social and humanistic fields. Nature shares the 2007 Award for Communication and Humanities with the journal Science.
Editor in Chief Philip Campbell has gone to collect the award, and will be sending us his diary report soon.
