Clinical Pharmacokinetics is the major review journal in the area of clinical pharmacokinetics, the study of drug disposition in the human body, which is an integral part of drug development and rational pharmacotherapy.

The Journal promotes the continuing development of clinical pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, for the improvement of drug therapy and to further postgraduate education in clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, by publishing critical and comprehensive review articles and clinically focussed original research articles.

Clinical Pharmacokinetics offers a range of additional features designed to increase the visibility, readership and educational value of the journal’s content. Each article is accompanied by a Key Points summary, giving a time-efficient overview of the content to a wide readership. Articles may be accompanied by plain language summaries to assist readers who have some knowledge of, but not in-depth expertise in, the area to understand the scientific content and overall implications of the article. The journal also provides the option to include various types of digital features including animated abstracts, video abstracts, slide decks, audio slides, instructional videos, infographics, podcasts and animations. All additional features are peer reviewed to the same high standard as the article itself. Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with other Adis journals.

There are no publication charges for standard publishing in Clinical Pharmacokinetics; the journal offers the option of Open Access publication via Springer Open Choice (article processing charge €3,060 / US$3,860).
