AIHP Announces New Pharmacy in History Editorial Team

Pharmacy in History Logo

AIHP is excited to announce the establishment of a new Editorial Team for Pharmacy in History, the Institute’s flagship academic journal. We are pleased to welcome three new contributing editors; Petros Bouras-Vallianatos, Kelly O’Donnell, and Jaipreet Virdi; and three new review editors; Amelie Bonney, Hilary Ingram, and Ian Miller. The new editorial team will assist Editor-in-Chief Lucas Richert and Senior Editor Greg Bond in editing, preparing, and soliciting content for Pharmacy in History.

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. “Among the editorial changes I hope to bring to PH are a broadening of the scope of what constitutes pharmacy history and an increase in the diversity of contributors,” Richert stated. “I wanted an editorial team that could, among other things, offer new scholarly and cultural perspectives, contribute content, and recruit other qualified scholars to take part in the life of the journal.”

Editoral Team Tasks:

Contributing Editors will work with the editorial team on a variety of matters, including identifying potential authors and topics for articles, commissioning articles and working with commissioned authors, preparing their own submissions, reviewing unsolicited manuscripts and managing (or participating on) peer review teams, and helping to develop special issues. Review Editors will work with the editorial team to select books or other media for review, assume responsibility for selecting reviewers for assigned books/media, edit submitted reviews, and prepare reviews for publication. In the coming months, the entire Editorial Team will work collaboratively to further refine the roles and responsibilities of the new Contributing Editors and Review Editors.

Contributing Editors:

Petros Bouras-Vallianatos, PhD, Wellcome Lecturer in the History of Medicine in the School of History, Classics, and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh in Edinburgh, Scotland

Kelly O’Donnell, PhD, Lecturer at Thomas Jefferson University of East Falls in Philadelphia, PA, Fore-coming Fellow at the Massachusetts Historical Society
