Aims and Scope
Latin American Journal of Pharmacy (formerly Acta Farmacéutica Bonaerense) is the scientific journal of the College of Pharmacists of Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. The journal publishes research reports in the form of original articles or short communications on most aspects of pharmaceutical sciences, with strong emphasis on originality and scientific quality. More specifically, but not exclusively, the journal publishes mainly reports in medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, drug absorption and metabolism, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, pharmaceutical and biomedical analysis, drug delivery, pharmaceutical technology and biotechnology, pharmaceutical care, and clinical drug evaluation. Reviews or mini-reviews are not encouraged, but experimental articles are privileged. Articles reporting the isolation of secondary metabolites of plants will be only considered if biological and toxicological assays are included. In general, reports on biological activities of crude extracts are not considered for publication unless any bioactive compound is isolated and identified. Contributions reporting unexceptional and predictable bioactivity (for instance, antioxidant activity of extracts or antimicrobial activity of essential oils) are not normally considered for publication.
Articles are indexed and abstracted in Chemical Abstracts Service, International Pharmaceutical Abstracts Service, BioScience Information Service (Biological Abstracts), Periodica (Index of Latin American Scientific Journals), International Pharmaceutical Technology & Product Manufacture Abstracts, Referativnyi Zhurnal (Institut of Scientific Information, Russian Academy of Sciences), EMBASE/Excerpta Medica, LILACS (Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature) and LATINDEX.
