Pharmacology Research & Perspectives has now been accepted for indexing in PubMed Central (PMC).

Pharmacology Research & Perspectives invites authors to submit research articles and invites submission of several types of special articles. These are:
1. Target validation – publication of negative findings including preclinical papers that show a hypothesis is incorrect or papers on drugs that have failed in early clinical development
2. Drug discovery reviews – strategy, hypotheses and data resulting in a successful therapeutic drug
3. Frontiers in translational medicine – drug and target validation for an unmet therapeutic need
4. Pharmacological hypotheses – reviews that are oriented to inform a novel hypothesis
5. Replication studies - work that refutes key findings (failed replication), and work that validates key findings
Read more about PR&P's support for the publication of negative findings.

PR&P authors benefit from:
• Rapid peer review
• Full compliance with all open access mandates
• Authors retain copyright and articles are published under a Creative Commons License

Supported by ASPET and BPS Journals

The following journals published by ASPET and BPS participate in a Manuscript Transfer Program by referring selected articles of suitable quality and offering authors the option to have their paper, with any peer review reports, automatically transferred to Pharmacology Research & Perspectives. Manuscripts are now also transferred from Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology (BCPT) and Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety (PDS) if deemed appropriate. We do, of course, encourage direct submission of articles.
