AAPS publishes four journals. The newest is the AAPS Open. In 2015, AAPS launched a new peer-reviewed journal using the open access model. AAPS Open provides a global forum for the rapid and barrier-free publication of reports of original research and other significant scientific work across the breadth of pharmaceutical sciences. The journal is freely available to anyone with Web access and will be funded by author publication charges on manuscripts accepted for publication.

Abstracts & ePosters

The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) encourages participation in our meetings and conferences with abstract submissions of your research for poster presentation during select meetings. Authors are encouraged to review the Call for Papers for specific meetings before submitting an abstract as our requirements may change from meeting to meeting.

Cover Story: Ethics in Research and Clinical Trials 

By: Mark Crawford

In recent years, there has been an upward trend in falsified results appearing in medical research papers—both as willful fraud and unreliable/irreproducible research. “Research misconduct is certainly more prominent in the media these days,” states Peter Swaan, Ph.D., professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Maryland in Baltimore and editor-in-chief of Pharmaceutical Research.

AAPS Publications: Recent Advances in Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration

By: Aliasger K. Salem, Ph.D.

There is a major need to promote regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues such as the bone and cartilage. Approaches to regenerating musculoskeletal tissues include the use of programmed stem cells, growth factors, gene therapies, and scaffold matrix materials. These approaches are being developed as standalone therapeutic strategies and in combination.

Career Success: Emotional Intelligence: The Foundation to Managing Conflict 

By: Maggie McMullen and Erik Burns, Ed.D.

Conflicts—the Merriam Webster dictionary calls them fights or battles—in the workplace often arise from a basic lack of skills to address problems through direct and constructive conversations. Conflicts frequently result from emotional explosions, typically anger or frustration, directed at people, rather than the problem itself.

Focus Groups & Community

AAPS focus groups unite members with a common interest in a specific discipline. Focus groups encourage members in specialized fields to participate in open, dynamic communications with colleagues tackling similar challenges and to forge new relationships.

Animal Pharmaceutics and Technology

The Animal Pharmaceutics and Technology focus group is the only group within AAPS focused on the development and continuing education for professionals in the animal health industry.


The Bioanalytical group focuses on chromatographic assays applied to quantitative and qualitative investigations of small and large molecules in biological matrices that support drug discovery and development.


Bioequivalence is the regulatory science of establishing that one product is/should be equivalent to another one in terms of clinical safety and efficacy.

Cellular and Molecular Toxicology

The aim of the Cellular and Molecular Toxicology focus group is to provide a cross-disciplinary forum for all aspects of toxicology research relating to drug development and translational medicine.

Biomarkers in Translational Medicine

The most challenging task identified by the Food and Drug Administration and pharmaceutical companies is how to translate in vitro and laboratory findings into clinical applications and to facilitate drug development (qualifying and fitness of use).


Biosimilars have been approved in Europe and have reached Phase III studies in the U.S. Europe issued guidance documents nearly ten years ago; however, the Food and Drug Administration only released draft guidelines in 2012.
