Special Articles


Pharmacology Research & Perspectives has now been accepted for indexing in PubMed Central (PMC).

Pharmacology Research & Perspectives invites authors to submit research articles and invites submission of several types of special articles. These are

  1. Target validation - publication of negative findings including preclinical papers that show a hypothesis is incorrect or papers on drugs that have failed in early clinical development.

  2. Drug discovery reviews - strategy, hypotheses and data resulting in a successful therapeutic drug.

  3. Frontiers in translational medicine - drug and target validation for an unmet therapeutic need

  4. Pharmacological hypotheses - reviews that are oriented to inform a novel hypothesis

  5. Replication Studies - work that refutes key findings (failed replication), and work that validates key findings

In Memoriam: Darrell R. Abernethy, M.D. Ph.D.

It is with deep sadness that the Editorial Team at PR&P must convey the news that Darrell Abernethy, Editor in Chief of the Journal, has recently passed away. Darrell has been instrumental in raising the profile and quality of PR&P in both his roles on the Journal, first as Deputy Editor and then Editor. He has been a true inspiration to so many of our authors and editors who work in the field of pharmacology, very much a team player, providing considered and thoughtful responses. His wise counsel will be missed.

Rest in peace

PR&P Editorial Team
