Journal of Applied Pharmacy provides the rapid trimonthly publication of articles related to all aspects of Pharmacy practicing disciplines. Manuscripts are accepted for consideration on the condition that they represent original material, have not been published previously, are not being considered for publication elsewhere, and have been approved by each author. Review articles, research papers, case reports and letters to the editor may be submitted for publication. All authors of a manuscript must have agreed to its submission and are responsible for its content (initial submission and any subsequent versions), including appropriate citations and acknowledgments, and must also have agreed that the corresponding author has the authority to act on their behalf in all matters pertaining to publication of the manuscript. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to inform the coauthors of the manuscript's status throughout the submission, review, and publication processes. The corresponding author is responsible for obtaining permission from both the original author and the original publisher (i.e., the copyright owner) to reproduce or modify figures and tables and to reproduce text (in whole or in part) from previous publications.Manuscripts submitted to the journal must represent reports of original research, and the original data must be available for review by the editor if necessary. By submission of a manuscript to the journal, the author(s) guarantee that they have the authority to publish the work and that the manuscript, or one with substantially the same content, was not published previously, is not being considered for publication or published elsewhere.
Criteria of Publication
All manuscripts are considered to be confidential and are reviewed by the editors, members of the editorial board, or qualified reviewers. Publication of manuscripts by Journals are dependent primarily on their validity and coherence. The authors of published articles automatically transfer the copyright to Journals and there parent incorporation upon formal acceptance. However, the authors reserve right to use the information contained in the article for non-commercial purposes.
Conflicts of Interest
Authors are required to disclose any sponsorship or funding arrangements relating to their research and all authors should disclose any possible conflicts of interest.
Published research must comply with the guidelines for human studies and animal welfare regulations. Authors should state that subjects have given their informed consent and that the study protocol has been approved by the institute's committee on human research. Further, they should also state that animal experiments conform to institutional standards. This should be described in the Methods section. For those investigators who do not have formal ethics review committees, the principles outlined in the Declaration of Helsinki should be followed. Editors may request that authors provide documentation of the formal review and recommendation from the institutional review board or ethics committee responsible for oversight of the study. ICDTD Inc. requires authors to follow the requirements for manuscripts submitted to this journal.
Submission of Manuscripts
A manuscript number will be e-mailed to the corresponding author within 72 hours.
OMICS International Policy Regarding the NIH Mandate
OMICS International will support authors by posting the published version of articles by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central immediately after publication.
Article Processing Charges:
|Journal of Applied Pharmacy is organized by OMICS International, a self supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the operation of the Journal is solely financed by the handling fees received from authors and some academic/corporate sponsors. The handling fees are required to meet maintenance of the journal. Being an Open Access Journal, Journal of Applied Pharmacy does not receive payment for subscription, as the articles are freely accessible over the internet. Authors of articles are required to pay a fair handling fee for processing their articles. However, there are no submission charges. Authors are required to make payment only after their manuscript has been accepted for publication.|
Submission of an Article
The following detailed instructions are necessary to allow direct reproduction of the manuscript for rapid publishing. If instructions are not followed, the manuscript will be returned for retyping. Manuscript Organization and Preparation Conventions names of genes, micro-organisms or botanical origin of plants must be italicized. Authors must use the original name published unless they have obtained permission to rename from the authors of the original study or international body. American spelling should be used throughout the manuscript.
|OMICS International accepts various formats of literary works such as research articles, reviews, abstracts, addendums, announcements, article-commentaries, book reviews, rapid communications, letters to the editor, annual meeting abstracts, conference proceedings, calendars, case-reports, corrections, discussions, meeting-reports, news, obituaries, orations, product reviews, hypotheses and analyses.|
|This section includes acknowledgment of people, grant details, funds, etc.|
|If an author fails to submit his/her work as per the above instructions, they are requested to maintain clear titles namely headings, subheading.|
|Only published or accepted manuscripts should be included in the reference list. Meetings abstracts, conference talks, or papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. All personal communications should be supported by a letter from the relevant authors.|
|OMICS uses the numbered citation (citation-sequence) method. References are listed and numbered in the order that they appear in the text. In the text, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. When there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Example: "... now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28]". Make sure the parts of the manuscript are in the correct order for the relevant journal before ordering the citations. Figure captions and tables should be at the end of the manuscript.|
|Because all references will be linked electronically as much as possible to the papers they cite, proper formatting of the references is crucial. Please use the following style for the reference list:|
|Please list the first five authors and then add "et al." if there are additional authors.|
|These should be used at a minimum and designed as simple as possible. We strongly encourage authors to submit tables as .doc format. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Preferably, the details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text. Cells can be copied from an Excel spreadsheet and pasted into a word document, but Excel files should not be embedded as objects.|
|If the submission is in PDF format, the author is requested to retain the same in .doc format in order to aid in completion of process successfully.|
|The preferred file formats for photographic images are .doc, TIFF and JPEG. If you have created images with separate components on different layers, please send us the Photoshop files.|
|All images must be at or above intended display size, with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line Art + Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. See the Image quality specifications chart for details. Image files also must be cropped as close to the actual image as possible.|
|Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.|
|These should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet.|
|If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files (i.e., a file containing only the data for one equation). Only when tables cannot be encoded as XML/SGML can they be submitted as graphics. If this method is used, it is critical that the font size in all equations and tables is consistent and legible throughout all submissions.|
|All Supplementary Information (figures, tables and Summary diagram/, etc.) is supplied as a single PDF file, where possible. File size within the permitted limits for Supplementary Information. Images should be a maximum size of 640 x 480 pixels (9 x 6.8 inches at 72 pixels per inch).|
