The Honghi Tran TAPPI Journal Best Research Paper Prize is a $2,000 cash prize presented annually to the Honghi.jpgwinner of the TAPPI Journal Best Research Paper Award.

For more than 17 years, the TAPPI Journal (TJ) Editorial Board has honored the best of TJ content by nominating and voting for the TAPPI Journal Best Research Paper Award, which is determined by the scientific merit, innovation, creativity, and clarity of a nominated paper.

A TAPPI member since 1980, Honghi Tran, Ph.D. has published more than 80 papers in TJ. 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 emeritus for the University of Toronto and was the director of the University’s Pulp and Paper Centre. He is also editor of the recently published Kraft Recovery Boilers, Third Edition and serves as the lead instructor of the TAPPI Kraft Recovery Operations Course.

“As an active contributor to TJ, I always want to see it flourish,” said Tran. “TJ is not only important for the researchers, but is also vital for the technological advancement 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 submit their research to TJ.”
