Review of Opinions and Summary Reports Guideline

The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) has established a position of leadership among pharmaceutical scientists such that the opinions of AAPS groups and summary reports from AAPS-sponsored events may be disseminated. This guideline provides a general framework by which such opinions should be communicated, posted, or published, and the process by which the association will review such items for approval.
