The European Journal of Pharmacology publishes full-length papers, short communications and rapid communications on the mechanisms of action of chemical substances affecting biological systems. The journal also considers short reviews (not exceeding 12 pages in print) intended to debate recent advances in rapidly developing fields that are within its scope.
Full-length papers and short communications are grouped under the following headings: Behavioral pharmacology, Neuropharmacology and analgesia, Cardiovascular pharmacology, Pulmonary, gastrointestinal and urogenital pharmacology, Endocrine pharmacology, Immunopharmacology and inflammation, and Molecular and cellular pharmacology. Manuscripts submitted to the journal are accepted on the understanding that: (1) they are subject to editorial review, (2) they have not been and will not be published in whole or in part in any other journal, and (3) the recommendations from the declaration of Helsinki and the internationally accepted principles in the use of experimental animals have been adhered to. Abridged "General instructions" for authors are published at the end of each issue. Essential detailed instructions will be found in the "Notice to authors", published once yearly (for 2002, in Vol. 438, Nos 1-2). The table of contents for this journal is now available pre-publication, via e-mail, as part of the free ContentsDirect service from Elsevier.
