A judging panel of historians will evaluate nominations on the basis of (i) the significance of the book or series of articles to scholarship in the field of the history of pharmacy, and pharmaceuticals, and (ii) the quality of the research, interpretation and presentation of the subject matter of the book or series of articles.
