TAPPI Announces Cash Prize Award To Accompany Best Research Paper TAPPI has announced the endowment of the Honghi Tran TAPPI Journal Best Research Paper Prize, a $2,000 cash prize that will be presented annually to the winner of the TAPPI Journal Best Research Paper Award. For more than 17 years, the TAPPI Journal (TJ) Editori- al Board has honored the best of TJ content by nominat- ing and voting for the TAPPI Journal Best Research Paper Award which is determined by the scientific merit, innova- tion, creativity, and clarity of a nominated paper. Honghi Tran, Ph.D. has published more than 80 papers in TJ. He received the 2019 Best Research Paper Award for “The solubility of calcium carbonate in green liquor handling systems” that he co-authored with his University of Toron- to colleagues Alisha Gigli and Vladimiros Papangelakis. A TAPPI member since 1980, Tran received TAPPI’s highest honor, the Gunnar Nicholson Gold Medal, in 2017. He is a TAPPI Fellow, PAPTAC Fellow, and a Canadian Academy of Engineering Fellow. He is a professor emer- itus for the University of Toronto and was the director of the University’s Pulp and Paper Centre. “As an active contributor to TJ, I always want to see it flourish,” said Tran. “TJ is not only important for the re- searchers, but is also vital for the technological advance- ment of the pulp and paper industry. My hope is that the

addition of the prize will encourage more researchers and technical personnel working for the industry to sub- mit their research to TJ.” Prospective authors from academic and research in- stitutions, as well as speakers who present scientific pa- pers at TAPPI conferences, are encouraged to submit their research for peer review and consideration for pub- lication. Submit your abstract at . The first Honghi Tran TAPPI Journal Best Paper Prize will be presented at TAPPICon, April 25-28, 2021 in Atlanta. Dr. Tran plans to make the presentation himself.
