Submission of a manuscript to International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences Review and Research for publication implies that the same work has not been either published or under consideration for publication in another Journal. Authors, in their cover note to the Editor, have to clearly mention whether the manuscript shall be considered as a Research Paper, case report or Review Article and also confirm that the manuscript has not been submitted to any other Journal for publication. Authors publishing results from in vivo experiments involving animals or humans should state whether due permission for conduction of these experiments was obtained, from the relevant ethics committees, in the Materials and Methods section.

Peer review process

All manuscripts receive individual identification codes. The Editor in-chief (Managing Editor) then sends it to an appropriate Editor. However a submission may be declined by the Managing Editor without review, if deemed inappropriate for reasons other than scientific merit. The Editors are fully responsible for decisions about manuscripts. The final decision whether to accept or reject a paper rests with them. The Editor in-chief (Managing Editor) only communicates the final decision and informs the authors about further processing.

Revised manuscript submission

When revision of a manuscript is requested, authors should return the revised version of their manuscript as soon as possible. Prompt action may ensure fast publication if a paper is finally accepted for publication.

Types of manuscripts

Research articles should present new experimental studies in elaborate form that constitute a significant contribution to knowledge. Research articles should not exceed 15 pages.

Review articles should bring up the most important current topics or present interpretative and critical accounts, but not simple compilation, on subjects of general interest. It should be long enough to cover up-to-date information. All format requirements are same as those applicable to full papers. Review articles need not be divided into sections such as Materials and Methods and Results and Discussion, but should definitely have an Abstract and Introduction, if necessary. Review Papers should not exceed 25 pages.

Case reports: Case reports can be prepared with suitable introduction and case out puts in suitable formats. Suitable sub titles can be made.

Transfer of Copyright Agreement
