    Aims and Scope


    Archives of Pharmacal Research is the official journal of the Pharmaceutical Society of Korea and has been published since 1976. Archives of Pharmacal Research is an interdisciplinary journal devoted to the publication of original scientific research papers and reviews in the fields of drug discovery, drug development, and drug actions with a view to providing fundamental and novel information on drugs and drug candidates.

    Manuscripts will be considered for publication on the condition that the results reported are based on original research that has not been published elsewhere in any journal.

    Upon acceptance for publication of an article in Archives of Pharmacal Research, the author tacitly agrees to make available any materials used in the published experiments, or novel or natural products disclosed in the article that are not commercially available, so that other researchers may confirm the observations.

    For the studies using natural extract, the journal will determine the acceptability of such papers on an individual basis. Natural product contribution must meet the following specific criteria: a) any natural extract must be defined, and appropriate information provided regarding the origin; b) the author must be able to state that the material under study is endotoxin free.

    Later on, upon acceptance of your article you will receive an E-mail link to the Author Query and article’s online Proof at Springer’s web page. The purpose of the proof is to check for typesetting or conversion errors and the completeness and accuracy of the text, tables and figures. Substantial changes in content, e.g., new results, corrected values, title and authorship are not allowed without the approval of the responsible Editor. In such case, please contact the Editorial Office. (E-mail: pskor@korea.com).

    Corresponding author will automatically receive a free electronic offprint(PDF file) upon issue publication. However, If author wishes to order paper offprints(paid subscription), it is also available by choosing alternative publishing option when through the  ‘Author Query/My Publication’ stage at Springer’s web page. This contains info on transfer of copyright, option to order Open Access, paper offprints, posters..etc.

    Authors should be more careful and be aware that the ‘online proof’ they receive is their final chance to make changes to the article. Editorial office’s policy is that Issuing Erratum after official publication is restrictively allowed and author will be charged for extra Errata handling charge.
