A professor in the department of chemical, paper, and biomedical (CPB) engineering was recognized in the TAPPI Journal (TJ) for joining the TJ Editorial Board.

Doug Coffin, professor in CPB, has been a member of TAPPI since 1994, and has been recognized by the Journal many times for his work in the field of Paper Physics. Some of his awards include the Akker Prize in Paper Physics in 2001, the TAPPI Corrugated Division Award, and Bettendorf Prize in 2011.


Coffin voluntarily joined the board, and spends many hours, alongside other editors overseeing the peer review process, as well as, contributing to the TAPPI Journal.

During his time at the Journal he has held many positions. Coffin was able to be the past chair and current member of the TAPPI Paper Physics Committee, helping further the field that he is so passionate about.  

In addition, Coffin has previously been a reviewer for the Journal, and is looking forward to helping “facilitate the connection between author and reader” as an editor. He desires to bring high quality information about the Paper Physics field to the Journal that will be beneficial to the readers of the Journal.

We are excited for the work and contribution that Coffin will have at this major publication. To read more about Coffin’s experience with the TAPPI Journal, please review the August 2018 editorial in the TAPPI Journal.
