Aim, scope and audience

The Pharmaceutical Journal was founded in 1841 and is the official journal of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. Published by the Pharmaceutical Press, the journal is recognised as an editorially independent publication under the terms of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s charter.

The Pharmaceutical Journal is read by pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists and other healthcare professionals, with all members of  the Royal Pharmaceutical Society offered a complimentary subscription.

The journal aims to provide insight and knowledge about drugs, pharmacy practice, medicines use and healthcare policy in the context of the pharmacy profession and pharmaceutical sciences. It also includes peer-reviewed reviews, perspectives and CPD articles on topics from drug discovery to clinical pharmacology and pharmacy.

The Editor assumes responsibility for all editorial content.

Our sister titles, the International Journal of Pharmacy Practice, the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, the Journal of Pharmaceutical and Health Services Research and the RPS Pharmacy and Pharmacology Reports, will consider original or primary research article submissions that meet their criteria.
