Pharmacokinetics is the branch of pharmacology that deals with the determination of the fate of the drug when administered into a living system till the point it gets completely eliminated from the body. In simple words it is defined as the branch that studies what the body does to a drug when it is being administered into the system. It describes the aspects on how the body affects a particular drug through the mechanisms of absorption and distribution; as well as the effects and routes of excretion of drug metabolites. It also highlights the undergone chemical changes of the drug while in the body due to the action of metabolizing enzymes. The pharmacokinetic properties of the drug are affected by elements like dose of drug and site of its administration that may affect the drug absorption rates. The branch of pharmacokinetics is often studied in conjunction with pharmacodynamics to study an overall drugs pharmacological effects on the body. The top open access journals are peer reviewed scholarly journals of Clinical & Experimental Pharmacology. The top open access journals are freely available on the public internet domain, allowing any end users to read, download, copy, distribute, prink, search or link to the full texts of the articles. These provide high quality, meticulously reviewed and rapid publication, to cater the insistent need of scientific community.These journals are indexed with all their citations noted. The top open access journals are indexed in MEDLINE, PUBMED, SCOPUS, COPERNICUS, CAS, EBSCO and ISI.
