American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy


The Journal continues its mission to provide information that reports the scholarly activity of pharmacy educators. Volume 59 reflects the ongoing activity in curricular change in schools and colleges of pharmacy as they plan the entry-level Doctor of Pharmacy degree. For the year 1995, 64 unsolicited manuscripts were received. Volume 59 published 40 manuscripts from this category of papers. The submissions have remained relatively constant over the recent past but still are well below the volume of papers submitted a decade ago. A summary of Journal content for the past five years is in Table I. In addition to the publication of unsolicited manuscripts, six papers from teachers recognized as “Best Instructor” at their school of pharmacy were included in the Teachers’ Topics Section. Although these papers are solicited they still are subject to the peer review process for accuracy and clarity of content. This year, topics from faculty in pharmacy practice such as long-term management of asthma, pharmacotherapy of otitis media, and acute pain and management were published. Papers from basic pharmaceutical science faculty such as antibiotic mechanisms, antineoplastic drug resistance and colligative properties also appeared in this Section. These papers traditionally are included in the Summer issue. The publication of these manuscripts is another means of giving recognition to those selected as best instructor at their school or college of pharmacy.
