AIHP is pleased to announce the formation of a new Editorial Board for its academic journal, Pharmacy in History. The Editorial Board will “provide guidance, advice and assistance to the editors of Pharmacy in History,” according to a Statement of Purpose memorandum adopted by AIHP’s Board of Directors.
Editor-in-Chief of Pharmacy in History Lucas Richert, who also serves as AIHP’s new Historical Director, initiated formation of the Editorial Board as part of a comprehensive re-examination of AIHP’s publishing program. “Fostering world-leading scholarship in the history of pharmaceuticals and pharmacy is essential to the long-term success of AIHP,” Richert stated. “To promote such scholarship, the Institute must have a high-quality academic journal with a reputation that attracts submissions from leading scholars.” Additional measures designed to enhance the quality of Pharmacy in History will be announced in coming months.
