Industry Peers Identify Knovel as the Best Online Science or Technology Service Within the Content Category

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 27, 2010) - Knovel, a Web-based application integrating technical information with analytical and search tools, was selected as the Best Online Science or Technology Service within the content category of the SIIA's 2010 CODiE Awards. Winners were announced last night in New York City at the 25th Annual CODiE Awards Dinner held in conjunction with the 2010 Information Industry Summit.

The CODiE Awards showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and honor excellence in corporate achievement and philanthropic efforts. The CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. This is the first year Knovel submitted an entry for this prestigious and competitive award.

"We are thrilled to receive the distinction of the best online science or technology service content provider by the members of the SIIA for our debut entry," says Chris Forbes, president and CEO of Knovel. "The process was competitive, and we applaud all of this year's finalists. Knovel has earned global recognition as a trusted provider of online technical information. Our validated content, optimized search and data analysis tools enable engineers to not only easily find relevant data, but also analyze, document and incorporate it into their everyday work."

The Best Online Science or Technology Service award recognizes the online service that best conveys information to scientific or technology professionals, including journals, chemical properties data, developments in computer and software technology, geophysical data, patents, standards and specifications, technical papers and reports.

"The CODiE Awards represent excellence in the software and digital information industries. By providing recognition of the best new technology products and services, SIIA proudly advances the important role participating companies play in the digital economy," noted SIIA President Ken Wasch. "CODiE Award winners are a testament to the power of technology to deliver innovative solutions to businesses and consumers. SIIA warmly congratulates all of the winners and nominees of the CODiE Awards, whose innovation is essential for continuing America's leadership in the global knowledge economy," Wasch continued.

In November 2009, Knovel announced the availability of personalization features and functionality that facilitate how engineers gather and interact with engineering information. These new features, called My Knovel, are a natural extension of Knovel's proven search capabilities and unique interactive tools.
