Drug Research

Drug Research (formerly Arzneimittelforschung) is an international peer-reviewed journal with expedited processing times presenting the very latest research results related to novel and established drug molecules and the evaluation of new drug development. A key focus of the publication is translational medicine and the application of biological discoveries in the development of drugs for use in the clinical environment. Articles and experimental data from across the field of drug research address not only the issue of drug discovery, but also the statistical methods for evaluating results from experimental investigations and clinical trials.

Publishing twelve times a year, Drug Research includes original research articles and modelling approaches as well as reviews, commentaries and short communications in the following areas:

• analytics applied to clinical trials
• medicinal chemistry and drug formulations
