Pharmacy in History Seeks Book Review Co-Editors

Cover of Pharmacy in History v. 58 no. 3-4The American Institute of the History of Pharmacy (AIHP) seeks one or two new book review co-editors to join the editorial team for the publication Pharmacy in History. Published on a quarterly basis, Pharmacy in History is the oldest journal of its kind in North America, and it is celebrating its 60th Anniversary in 2019. More information can be found on the AIHP website ( and at JSTOR ( We define pharmacy history broadly; our readers are interested in transatlantic, transnational, and postcolonial approaches—and in histories of pharmaceuticals, intoxicants, and the history of medicine more generally. We particularly encourage applications from scholars interested in these topics in areas outside of the United States.

The application deadline is Friday, November 23, 2018. AIHP staff will select the new editors by Monday, December 17, 2018, to facilitate a smooth transition. New book review editors will begin working with the current team by Monday, January 7, 2019. We expect the reviews editors to carry out a 2-year term in the first instance. Those interested should email a 2-page CV and a short cover letter (as a single PDF document) to the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy at (Please use “Book Review Editor” as the email subject). Experience in the history of medicine or the history of pharmacy, preferably at the PhD level or higher, will be an asset. The total time commitment averages 3-5 hours per week. Current assistant editor Greg Bond ( will be happy to answer questions about the duties.

Advancing knowledge and understanding of the history of pharmacy and medicines.
