JoPPP series on access to medicines, pricing, generics, biologics

Series Editors: Andy Gray, Fatima Suleman, Zaheer-Ud-Din Babar

The Journal of Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice (formerly known as Southern Med Review) provides a platform for researchers to disseminate empirical research findings, with the aim that people everywhere have access to the medicines they need and use them rationally. The Journal encompasses all aspects of pharmacy including policy development, clinical, social, administrative or economic, and provides a platform to researchers, academics and practitioners from around the world to share new evidence, concerns and perspectives.

To mark the 10th anniversary of its founding, the Journal is planning a themed series on the broad topic of access to medicines. The Journal invites submissions that deal with medicine policy, pricing, access to generics and follow-on biologics (biosimilars), as well as high priced medicines in all settings. In particular, submissions that address the development of innovative methodologies, that move beyond survey methods to institutionalise measures of access at the national and regional levels, will be welcomed.

Last date to submit the manuscripts: 31st July 2018

Series publication date: October 2018
