TheAAPSJournal_200The AAPS Journal (ISSN: 1550-7416) is an online-only journal publishing peer-reviewed scholarly reviews, theme issues, and research articles within the entire scope of the pharmaceutical sciences encompassed by the AAPS membership. The journal particularly aims to foster the dissemination of scientific information presented at AAPS-sponsored meetings, workshops, and symposia through the publication of invited reviews in theme issues. Additionally, guest editors are invited to organize special theme issues on scientific subjects of current interest. Submission of uninvited expert reviews and research articles in all areas of pharmaceutical sciences are welcomed, although manuscripts focused on pharmaceutical formulation, technology, and engineering should be directed to our sister ejournal, AAPS PharmSciTech.

Editor-in-Chief Ho-Leung Fung, Ph.D., oversees an international editorial board of leading researchers in the pharmaceutical sciences. Fung is professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York.
