Aims and Scope

Marmara Pharmaceutical Journal is the official scientific journal of Marmara University Faculty of Pharmacy. The journal is the continuation of the former "Journal of Pharmacy of University of Marmara" which was published between 1985 and 1997. Since 2010, the journal has been published online tri-annually (January, May and September). It is an open access, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the publication of papers in pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences. The articles may be either in English or in Turkish. The journal aims at providing a medium for the dissemination of interdisciplinary papers of interest for many different specialists.

Marmara Pharmaceutical Journal publishes original research papers, review articles and scientific commentaries on all aspects of pharmaceutical sciences depending on their conceptual novelty and scientific quality. The journal welcomes articles in this multidisciplinary field, with a focus on topics relevant for drug action, drug discovery and development, conventional and emerging fields related to pharmaceutical sciences. Articles, which cannot be associated with pharmaceutical issues in any way, might be returned to authors without processing. Scientific commentaries and review articles are generally evaluated by invitation or assent of the Editors. Proceedings of scientific meetings may also be published as special issues or supplements to the Journal, upon decision by the editors.
