About Pharmacy Practice

Pharmacy Practice is a free peer-reviewed journal with a scope on pharmacy practice. Pharmacy Practice is published quarterly. Pharmacy Practice does not charge and will never charge any publication fee or article processing charge (APC) to the authors. The current and future absence of any APCs is signed in the memorandum of understanding with the Center for Pharmacy Practice Innovation (CPPI) at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Pharmacy. Pharmacy Practice is the consequence of the efforts of a number of colleagues from different universities who believe in collaborative publishing: nobody pays, nobody gets paid.

Although focusing on the practice of pharmacy, Pharmacy Practice covers a wide range of pharmacy activities, such as, clinical pharmacy, pharmaceutical care, social pharmacy, pharmacy education, process and outcome research, health promotion and education, health informatics, and pharmacoepidemiology, as well as many others.

Having an international scope is a major goal for Pharmacy Practice. See the list of authors since 2007.

Pharmacy Practice is being indexed and abstracted at PubMed, PubMed Central, Embase, Scopus, Ebsco EJS, Directory of Open Access Journals, Web of Science (ESCI), Open J-gate, Scielo, Dialnet, IBECS, REDIB, Latindex, Redalyc.

Pharmacy Practice is a peer-reviewed journal. To make the peer review process work properly, it is necessary to count with a wide pool of prestigious peer reviewers, experts in different areas in journal’s scope. Pharmacy Practice has created a peer reviewer selection process based on searching in PubMed for articles closely related to each manuscript awaiting evaluation (see a description of the peer reviewer selection process). We aim to ensure the expertise of each reviewer in the specific topic. Working as a peer-reviewer in Pharmacy Practice has no remuneration. See the list of peer reviewers who have collaborated in Pharmacy Practice.

Pharmacy Practice is funded through the corporate social responsibility funds of Centro de Investigaciones y Publicaciones Farmaceuticas and scientifically partnered with the Center for Pharmacy Practice Innovation at VCU.
