About the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education
The American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education (AJPE) is the official
publication of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). Its purpose
is to document and advance pharmaceutical education in the United States and
Internationally. The Journal considers material in all areas related to pharmaceutical
education. Through open-access Internet publication the Journal intends to take full advantage
of the electronic medium; this includes the publication of articles with multimedia
features, encompassing 3D graphics, video, interactive figures and databases,
and sound. The Journal Editor is Joseph T. DiPiro, Professor and Executive Dean at the South Carolina Colege of Pharmacy.
The electronic Journal will be issued quarterly. In addition, a year-end
print volume will be made available to AACP member institutions and to others
upon request for a nominal fee. Access to the electronic Journal will not
be restricted by password.
The Journal accepts unsolicited manuscripts that
have not been published and are not under consideration for publication
elsewhere. All manuscripts are subject to peer review and approval by the
Editor before publication. Authors must prepare manuscripts to conform
to the Journal style. Authors are not assessed page charges for publication. All
reports and papers presented at the Annual Meeting of the AACP, as
well as manuscripts accepted for publication, become the property of AACP. All
requests for reassignment of the above rights should be directed to the Editor.
Referees are assigned by the Editor with the
advice of the Editorial Board as needed. Manuscripts are processed on line
by the Editor, Editorial Assistant, and the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists using a
computer-based tracking system that relies on keyword selection and
automatic time lines for review. The
electronic submission and review process is intended to expeditiously complete the
publication process using electronic communication between the
editorial office, editors, referees, and authors. Once an article is accepted, a
final version is sent to the author for approval by email. The article is
published on the AJPE web site shortly thereafter.
All expressions of opinion and statements of
supposed fact appearing in the Journal are not to be regarded as necessarily
expressing the policy or views of the Editor or of AACP.
Articles appearing in the Journal are indexed
in: PubMed/Medline; Current Contents, Education; Current Contents, Life Sciences; International Pharmaceutical
Abstracts; Current Index to Journals in Education; and by PROQuest and EBSCO.
