Perspectives in Medicinal Chemistry
Perspect Med Chem
Perspectives in Medicinal Chemistry (PMC) is an exciting peer-reviewed open access on-line journal. It was developed to help medicinal chemists keep apace with the expanding volume of information published in their field. Rather than providing exhaustive reviews of published work, PMC calls upon leading researchers to succinctly summarize observations from numerous original publications as hybrid review-commentaries. These articles are published continually on the website and are often commissioned by the Editor in Chief. While the submission of completed manuscripts is acceptable, we encourage proposals for future articles sent to the Managing Editor. These proposals should provide a rationale and brief outline (<250 words) for the article. Articles published in PMC are succinct and carefully-illustrated works intending to provide a thoughtful overview of a significant research area in medicinal chemistry. Importantly, these articles provide a representative but not exhaustive overview of recent advances in a particular research field. Articles in PMC provide insight on the implications of the new developments and provide an opportunity for authors to discuss their ideas of 'the road ahead' in their research areas. These articles are carefully peer-reviewed to ensure a balanced representation of the literature. Perspectives in Medicinal Chemistry will publish articles that combine aspects of commentaries and reviews, allowing medicinal chemists to discuss drug design without the necessity of revealing proprietary information. Authors are encouraged to submit review-type manuscripts which go beyond conventional reviews by incorporating a sense of perspective to enhance articles' value to readers and to allow authors to demonstrate and share their perspectives in drug discovery.
