Journal of Pharmacy Practice

Long Island University, Brooklyn, NY

Published in Association with New York State Council of Health-System Pharmacists

2013 SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) Score: 0.330
The Journal of Pharmacy Practice (JPP) is a peer-reviewed journal that offers practicing pharmacists in-depth useful reviews and research trials and surveys of new drugs and novel therapeutic approaches, pharmacotherapy reviews and controversies, pharmacokinetics, drug interactions, drug administration, adverse drug events, medication safety, pharmacy education, and other pharmacy practice topics. Several issues will be partially dedicated to a pharmacy practice theme such as medication therapy management or drug-induced diseases. Special sections include biomedical informatics reviews, cardiology key articles, and the New York State Council of Health-System Section.

Like the pharmacy profession, topics are diverse. Recent topics have included:

  • Anticoagulation—Treating Thrombosis in Selected Patient Populations
  • Anticoagulation—Dosing, Monitoring, and Adverse Drug Reactions
  • Immunology and Autoimmune Diseases
  • Infectious Diseases in the Critically III
  • Diabetes Management
  • Topics in Internal Medicine
  • Hepatitis
  • Hepatology
  • Cardiovascular Therapeutics
  • Rheumatology

Each peer-reviewed issue assesses practice issues; practice settings; therapeutics issues; disease management; the latest research; current government, legal and regulatory issues; as well as issues arising from today’s topsy-turvy health-care environment. Each issue features a guest editor with particular expertise in the subject area.

Journal Aims

Journal of Pharmacy Practice was established in 1988 and is published 6 times per year. The journal is read and cited both nationally and internationally. The objective of the editorial board of the Journal of Pharmacy Practice, as well as that of SAGE Publications, is to offer the practicing pharmacist topical, pertinent, and useful information to support pharmacy practice and medication therapy management, as well as to expand the pharmacist s professional horizons.

Journal of Pharmacy Practice is presented in a focused single-topic, scholarly, peer-review format. Guest editors are selected for particular expertise in the subject area; they then recruit consulting editors and contributors from that practice or topic area and bring the information together in a relevant and timely fashion for the pharmacist audience.

Journal Scope

The readership, like the pharmacy profession, is diverse and so are the topics covered in every issue. Since the walls between pharmacy practice sites remain distinct yet continue to blend in the continuum of care, each pharmacy practitioner needs to be primed on a wide variety of practice essentials, new advents, and future trends. By focusing on a single topic in each issue, the journal provides the reader with a thorough review of that topic written by experienced and accomplished practitioners. Practice issues, practice settings, therapeutics issues, disease management, research, government, legal, and regulatory issues are reviewed in a timely manner. Each issue contains a list of forthcoming topics.

We intend that Journal of Pharmacy Practice will be of practical value to you. It has been used in daily practice as an informational reference and for teaching purposes; the focused, concise information provided saves time in literature review and provides a consolidated source of information and opinion for topics that affect the profession of pharmacy and the patients that pharmacists serve. Each issue will thoroughly review a topic, providing a validating experience for the reader who is familiar with the topic and new applicable knowledge for the reader who is not—validating for the expert, educating for the novice. Every effort has been made to ensure the correct usage of generic and trade names and to verify drug doses. The ultimate responsibility, however, lies with the practitioner. Please convey any errors or comments to the Editor-In-Chief.

Journal Specialty Sections

In addition to the main topic review articles, most issues will contain an Adverse Drug Events Section, Drug Information Section, Pharmacy Experiential Education Section, Law and Ethics in Pharmacy Practice Section, and a Biomedical Communications and Informatics Reviews Section.

The Adverse Drug Events Section will review drug-induced adverse effect case reports, plausible mechanisms, a literature review, and recommendations for management and prevention.

The Drug Information Section will provide the practitioner with comprehensively searched and evidence-based answers to a variety of drug information questions posed by health care professionals. A search strategy by drug information specialists will be provided to the audience.
The Pharmacy Education Section will provide contemporary reviews addressing the challenges and innovations associated with providing quality learning experiences for students enrolled in pharmacy experiential education activities. It will offer recommendations/ suggestions for individuals who serve as experiential pharmacy preceptors. Potential topics will be selected by a nationally recognized group of pharmacy practitioners involved in experiential education and will address academic, administrative, and accreditation-related issues.

The Law and Ethics in Pharmacy Practice Section will analyze pharmacy law, statutes and regulations, public policy, and ethical dilemmas as it pertains to pharmacy and health care.
The Biomedical Communications and Informatics Reviews Section will thoroughly review new books, journals, drug information resources, and Web sites. Occasionally, research articles, special feature articles, editorials, and commentaries will be published.

New York State Council of Health-system Pharmacists Section
