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.
