Aim & Scope

Drug discovery journal is an international drug science magazine which broadly valued among medicine, biotechnology and pharmacology, drug discovery scientists for its unique blend of important research papers, case studies, reviews, perspectives and news. Drug discovery journal involves the identification of screening hits, medicinal chemistry and optimization of those hits to increase the affinity, selectivity (to reduce the potential of side effects), efficacy/potency, metabolic stability (to increase the half-life), and oral bioavailability. Once a compound that fulfills all of these requirements has been identified, it will begin the process of drug development prior to clinical trials. One or more of these steps may, but not necessarily, involve computer-aided drug design.

  • Drug targets (Therapeutic targets) & delivery
  • Screening and design
  • Nature as source of drugs (Plant-derived, Microbial metabolites, Marine invertebrates)
  • Chemical diversity of natural products
  • Natural product drug discovery (Screening & Structural elucidation)

Drug Discovery Journal delivers exciting primary and advanced drug-discovery research from all areas of biology and medicine, from molecular biology to marketing of drugs, including;

  • Advances in key compound classes and therapeutic areas
  • Artificial genes & peptides - its delivery & therapeutic activity
