International Current Pharmaceutical Journal (ICPJ) is a monthly online Journal. This Journal publishes original research work that contributes significantly to further the scientific knowledge in pharmaceutical sciences (Pharmaceutical Technology, Industrial Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Phytochemistry, Natural Product Research, Pharmacology & Toxicology, Ethnopharmacology, Biopharmaceutics, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacogenomics, Pharmacovigilance, Nanotechnology, Pharmacotherapeutics, Pharmacoeconomics, Clinical Investigation, Drug Regulatory Affairs, Rational Drug Prescribing, Novel & Targeted Drug Delivery, Pharmacognosy & Ethanobotany, Pharmacy Practice & Hospital Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology & Microbiology, Novel Analytical Methods for Drug Characterization, Computational and Modelling Approaches to Drug Design). The Journal publishes original research work either as a Full Research Paper or as a Short Communication. Review Articles on a current topic in the said fields are also considered for publication by the Journal. The journal also publishes Mini-reviews.
As a condition of publication, all authors must transfer copyright to International Current Pharmaceutical Journal. Manuscripts submitted under multiple authorship are reviewed on the assumption that all listed authors concur in the submission, and that the final version of the manuscript has been seen and approved by them. All manuscripts submitted to ICPJ are critically reviewed. Most of the time, decisions on manuscripts are made on the basis of a single review.
All members and referees who review a manuscript remain unknown to the authors. Every manuscript is treated by the Editors and referees as privileged information, and they are instructed to exclude themselves from review of any manuscript that might involve a conflict of interest or the appearance thereof. The main criteria for the acceptability of a manuscript are its originality and scientific importance. Manuscripts judged lacking in these respects will be declined, even if the experimental work appears technically sound. This policy permits rejection of a manuscript solely on the judgment of the editorial board that the studies reported are insufficiently original or important to merit publication in the journal. If the first reviewer does not recommend a manuscript for publication, the Editor can reject it without further review. In some instances, a second opinion from another reviewer may be sought but the editor is not obliged to do so.
