Publication Frequency

Each calendar year will have one volume. JPTCP publishes articles as soon as the final copy-edited version is approved by the authors rather than waiting for a collection of articles for a specific issue. Also, each article is published in its respective category (editorial, review, original or commentary). As a result, the page numbers in the 'Table of Contents' displayed for each issue will reflect this rather than numerical order.

Author Processing Charges

Please note that starting May 1, 2019 the Journal of Population Therapeutics and Pharmacology (JPTCP) will charge an Author Processing Fee (APC) of US $650. Articles will go through a thorough peer review process, benefit from high quality editing, and will be posted on-line for greater exposure, within 60 days of acceptance. Articles are archived on the journal web site and through Portico. All articles/information will also be included in PubMed data base, Emerging Sources Citation Index, Scopus, EMBASE. All articles are archived through Portico and will be assigned a unique DOI (Digital Object Identifier) through Cross Ref. Articles will also be archived and available on ScienceOpen. An author’s ability to pay APCs is not a consideration in the decision of whether to publish.  Authors living in one of the United Nations' list of Least Developed Countries may request a fee waiver.  See UN country list for full details. Authors living in countries not considered "least developed" who do not have the ability to pay the APC's may be eligible for a reduced rate.
