African Journal of Pharmacology and Therapeutics

The African Journal of Pharmacology and Therapeutics (AJPT) publishes original articles on all topics related to basic and applied pharmacology.

AJPT is an Open-Access, peer-reviewed journal committed to the unbiased, independent, critical assessment of all scholarly work - including the scientific process – submitted to it for publication. AJPT submits all submitted manuscripts for outside, independent review.

AJPT is published quarterly by the Kenya Society for Basic and Applied Pharmacology (KeSoBAP) and is available as an open access journal.

Description and Scope

AJPT welcomes original papers in experimental and clinical pharmacology, therapeutics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics and pharmacometrics.

AJPT accepts manuscripts dealing with pharmacogenomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, in silico pharmacology, molecular biology, pharmacoepidemiology, clinical trials, drug discovery and development, evaluation of novel and existing drugs using novel methodologies, and alternative therapies such as phytotherapeutics and ayurveda.

Publishing and Editorial Issues

AJPT publishes original research articles as well as expert reviews and opinions that give an informed perspective in pharmacology and therapeutics, including topics that have a bearing on research and practice in the socio-economic, policy and medico-legal context.

To guard against possible publication bias, the Editorial Board shall consider for publication any carefully done study of an important question relevant to readers, whether or not the results for the primary or any additional outcome are (statistically) significant.

AJPT accepts comments, questions, or criticisms about published articles, as well as brief reports and commentary unrelated to previously published articles, and reserves the right to publish such correspondence.
