The APhA Best Published Paper Award for Economic, Social, and Administrative Sciences was established in 1996. In 2002, it was renamed the Wiederholt Prize in honor of Joseph B. Wiederholt, PhD (1949-2001). Dr. Wiederholt was the first recipient of the award and a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The purpose of the award is to recognize the best published paper in the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association (JAPhA) that describes original investigation in economic, social, or administrative sciences related to pharmacy.
The primary author must be an APhA Member. The paper need not have been presented before the Association. The paper must represent original research, and must have been published in JAPhA within 2 calendar years prior to the screening deadline (September 1 of the year before the presentation of the award). Papers will be evaluated based upon the quality of the science and translation of the research to the practice of pharmacy.
The ESAS Section Officers of APhA-APRS will screen all ESAS-related articles published in JAPhA, and select and submit finalists to the APhA-APRS Awards Committee by the screening deadline.
The selection is made by the APhA-APRS Awards Committee.
Nature of award
The award, presented at the APhA Annual Meeting & Exposition, consists an engraved plaque for the primary author of the selected paper, plus an engraved plaque for each of the associated authors, if any. The primary author also receives a complimentary APhA Annual Meeting & Exposition registration and reimbursement for meeting-related travel expenses, according to current travel policies and up to the maximum amount budgeted by APhA.
