Guidelines

Primary tabs

Authors reporting in vivo animal experiments and clinical trials are encouraged to refer to one of our associated journal about the ARRIVE guidelines (http://www.jpharmacol.com/text.asp?2010/1/2/94/72351) and the CONSORT statement (http://www.jpharmacol.com/text.asp?2010/1/2/100/72352) respectively and use the checklists given within them to improve the quality of the manuscripts. The checklists (Animal ExperimentsClinical Trial) must be downloaded, filled in and submitted along with the manuscripts. This would not only help the authors to include all the important information while preparing the manuscript but also speed up the peer review process.
