ASHP Acquires Journal of Health-System Pharmacy Residents®



Bethesda, MD—ASHP has announced the acquisition of


® (Journal of Health-System Pharmacy Residents®), a well-known and respected digital journal for pharmacy residents.

Launched in June 2012 by then pharmacy residents Bryan C. McCarthy, Jr., Pharm.D., M.S., BCPS, and David Reardon, Pharm.D., BCPS, the quarterly JHPR® has attracted a large and loyal readership. McCarthy and Reardon began the publication to provide more opportunities for pharmacy residents to present their research and contribute to advancing pharmacy practice.

“This acquisition is perfectly in line with ASHP’s long history of being the home for pharmacy residents and supporting their practice, research, and other scholarly endeavors,” said Paul W. Abramowitz, Pharm.D., Sc.D.(Hon.), FASHP, ASHP’s Chief Executive Officer, adding that residents are the profession’s future.

As part of that support, ASHP encourages residents to publish residency project manuscripts, medication utilization evaluations, results from research studies, and case reports. AJHP welcomes future expanded engagement in the Journal among residents, residency program directors, and preceptors.

“We are very happy to be able to offer this important publishing avenue to pharmacy residents,” said Carol Wolfe, ASHP’s Vice President, Publications and Drug Information Systems. “This acquisition vastly expands the opportunities for residents to share their knowledge and gain the kind of exposure that is important in building a new career. At the same time, it adds to the existing pharmacy literature in a groundbreaking and exciting way.”

JHPR® will continue as AJHP Residents Edition, a quarterly online supplement to AJHP, hosted with the Journal on High Wire Press. Access will mirror that of AJHP. Abstracts of JHPR® articles will be open access while full-text access will be limited to members and subscribers.

McCarthy and Reardon will continue in advisory roles to JHPR®, serving as AJHP contributing editors.
