International Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology (ISSN 2326-7267) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that publishes original research papers, critical reviews, short communications and case reports on the latest developments in all areas of pharmacy and pharmacology.
The aims of the journal include the following:
- To publish researches on aspects of drug development and production, drug delivery, from initial concept to potential therapeutic application and final relevance in clinical use, as well as the evaluation of drugs and pharmaceutical products.
- To publish articles covering research on all aspects of biological therapy, including gene therapy and gene transfer technologies, therapeutic peptides and proteins, vaccines and antibodies, and cell- and tissue-based therapies.
- To publish papers covering developments in pharmaceutical research, from animal studies through to early clinical investigation. The journal's scope includes therapeutics in many areas: pulmonary-allergy, dermatology, gastrointestinal, arthritis, infectious disorders, endocrine and metabolic, central and peripheral nervous system, cardiovascular and renal, and oncology.
- To publish original research papers, short communications, reviews, and letters on medicinal plant research. Key areas of interest are pharmacology, toxicology, and the clinical applications of herbs and natural products in medicine, from case histories to full clinical trials, including studies of herb-drug interactions and other aspects of the safety of herbal medicines. Papers concerned with the effects of common food ingredients and standardised plant extracts, including commercial products, are particularly relevant, as are mechanistic studies on isolated natural products.
- To publish significant researches covering pharmaceutics, biopharmaceutics, pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacognosy, pharmacology, pharmaceutical analysis, pharmacy practice, and clinical and hospital pharmacy.
- IJPP keeps pace with new research on how drug action may be optimized by new technologies, and attention is given to understanding and improving drug interactions in the body. At the same time, the journal maintains its established and well-respected core strengths in areas such as pharmaceutics and drug delivery, experimental and clinical pharmacology, biopharmaceutics and drug disposition, and drugs from natural sources.
- Its audience includes pharmaceutical scientists, pharmacologists, regulatory professionals, formulation scientists, process chemists and analytical chemists. Issues that affect the business of pharmacy—retail management, finance, ownership, staffing, and industry economics are also covered. IJPP also report on the state of affairs in the fields of pharmacy and pharmacology, with politics and policy from pharmacy’s leaders, along with professional and industry events and conferences.
- To publish articles covering research on the molecular mechanistic understanding of drug delivery and drug delivery systems, including physical and pharmaceutical chemistry, biochemistry and biophysics, molecular and cellular biology, and polymer and materials science.
- The journal publishes full-length papers on the mechanisms of action of chemical substances affecting biological systems. It also publishes short reviews debating recent advances in rapidly developing fields within its scope as well as research on the toxicological and pharmacological effects of environmental contaminants.
