Medicinal Chemistry Research (MCRE) publishes papers on a wide range of topics, favoring research with significant, new, and up-to-date information. Although the journal has a demanding peer review process, MCRE still boasts rapid publication, due in part, to the length of the submissions. The journal publishes significant research on various topics, many of which emphasize the structure-activity relationships of biologically active compounds. For more information on the areas of research that MCRE publishes, please see the Instructions for Authors.

  • Offers prompt publication of experimental achievements in drug design, drug discovery and mechanisms of action
  • Covers chemical biological relationships, and correlations of structure with mode of action
  • Increases understanding of biochemical interactions
  • 97% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
