Aims & Scope

Pharmacological Research provides a rapid information exchange medium for specialists within the discipline of pharmacology. The journal publishes papers on basic and applied pharmacological research and is proud of its rapid publication of accepted papers.

Invited and unsolicited review articles are also featured.

Research Areas are:
Biochemical and molecular pharmacology
Cardiovascular pharmacology
Gastrointestinal pharmacology
Clinical pharmacology, if addressing novel mechanisms of action
Respiratory tract pharmacology
Urogenital tract pharmacology
Pharmacology of tissue repair
Neuropharmacology, psychopharmacology, and neuroendocrinology
Chemotherapy and cancer therapy
Pharmacological applications of genomics
Pharmacology of aging
Nutraceuticals, if relevant to human disease

Note that ethnopharmacological studies generally do not fall into the scope of this journal. Exceptions are made for papers addressing the mechanisms of actions or the clinical applications of worldwide-used natural substances. Clinical studies on commercially-available nutraceuticals are also taken into consideration.

Immediate rejection criteria are:
1. Ethnopharmacological papers, namely studies that deal with locally-consumed plants.
2. In vitro antioxidant activity of plant extracts and pure compounds isolated from them.
3. Papers that describe pharmacological activities of plants which are not easily found worldwide, eg, Chinese herbs.
4. Papers reporting pharmacological activities of novel compounds if no proper controls with known substances are performed.
5. Papers describing the pharmacological activities of natural compounds are considered only if they identify novel mechanisms of action. In particular, Pharmacol Research does not publish papers that describe
• Single dose studies with very few animals, no dose-response studies.
• In-vitro assays with single dose or very high dose, measuring only one endpoint.
• Repetition of a simple bioassay for yet another extract or plant.
