Editor's quote

"I am delighted and honored to have been selected as the first Editor-in-Chief of AAPS Open, an open-access journal devoted to the rapid publication of quality articles in the pharmaceutical sciences. The journal will be a global forum for the barrier-free publication of reports of original research as well as other significant work that demonstrates applications of scientific concepts and techniques across the entire breadth of the field. Thus, AAPS Open will provide an important outlet for members of AAPS sections and focus groups to publish papers of interest to their communities, as well as for scientists throughout the field."

Christopher M. Riley,

AAPS Open provides a global forum for the rapid and barrier-free publication of reports of original research that demonstrates applications of scientific concepts and techniques across the breadth of the pharmaceutical sciences. Fully peer-reviewed, AAPS Open supports the international community of experts in pharmaceutical sciences by providing a venue for articles that further the understanding of all aspects of the field. A high degree of innovation is not a required element for publication; the journal seeks to publish papers that are technically sound. AAPS Open welcomes reports from experimental or theoretical studies during the normal course of development of a drug candidate, e.g., assay development and validation, formulation, stability, metabolism screening, bioavailability assessment and comparison, food effects studies, manufacturing approaches, and so forth.

Society affiliation

AAPS Open is an official journal of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists.
