This report is a compilation of activity and statistics for the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education for 2014 (Volume 78). The Journal is published in electronic, open access format and housed at www.ajpe.org. A print edition of the entire volume was produced and will be sent to all American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) member institutions and paid subscribers. One hundred thirty-four peer-reviewed manuscripts were published in 10 issues of volume 78, including a theme issue on Faculty Development. Viewpoints, Addresses, Reports, and other material (Table 1) were also published. In 2014, 544 manuscripts were submitted to the Journal. Of these, 32% were accepted for publication.
