ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science Wants Your Research

ACS Publications and Editor-in-Chief, Professor  Patrick M.Sexton, Ph.D., launched ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science earlier this year to provide the community of scientists working across the broad spectrum of pharmacology, biochemistry, and experimental medicine with a place to publish their high-quality, innovative, multidisciplinary research.

“The specific launching of ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science recognizes a gap in publishing opportunities for authors bringing together interdisciplinary sciences and integrating molecular and biological studies to improve the translational relevance of their research,” says Professor Sexton. “We’ve already begun publishing some excellent work that highlights the broad translational scope of the journal and have strong manuscripts in peer review. We encourage you to join in by submitting your team’s research.”

Why Publish Your Research in ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science?

It can be hard to evaluate a new journal’s value and quality before it’s had time to establish a reputation, but ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science launched on the long-respected reputation of the ACS Publications portfolio of peer-reviewed journals. That portfolio now contains more than 55 journals, including:

“ACS has an outstanding reputation as a scientific publisher with a strong commitment to integrity. Chemistry is at the foundation of new medicines, and chemistry and chemical biology have been at the forefront in creating new tools that have revolutionized translational research. As such, ACS Publications is the right partner at the right time to fulfill our mission of creating a new, high-profile, destination for pharmacological and related translational science research,” says Professor Sexton.

When you publish your research with ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science, you get:
