International Journal of Research in Pharmacy and Science (IJRPS) is an international open access quarterly online Journal, which publishes original research work that contributes scientific knowledge in pharmacy and science. International journal of research in pharmacy and science is committed to publish online the original scientific research, reviews, short communication & case study in the field of pharmaceutics, Medicinal chemistry, Pharmaceutical Analysis and Quality Assurance, Pharmacognosy, Pharmacology and Toxicology, Hospital and Clinical Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Education and Professional Pharmacy, Regulatory Affairs in Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Management, General Chemistry, Biochemistry, Zoology, Botany, Environmental Science, Biotechnology and Bio therapeutics, Microbiology and all field of science. International journal of research in pharmacy and science is a unique publication dedicated to presenting the results of scientific and technical research from Pharmacy and Science discipline in an open-access background.

 When a manuscript is submitted to the journal, it is given a number and a acknowledgement of submission is sent to corresponding author within 5 days. Two reviewers are assigned to check the suitability of manuscript in respect of journal aim, scope & policy. The reviewers check the article under strict guidelines and provide feedback to editors within 20 days. Then corresponding author is informed about the editor’s decision to accept without change, recommended for modification, further review, or reject. If modifications are requested, the corresponding author must either submit the modified manuscript within 20 days or withdraw the manuscript. after receiving modified manuscript we send a mail either to submit copyright transfer form and fee or regarding re modification or rejection of manuscript within 5 days. after receiving copyright form and fee we send you acceptance letter within 3 days and galley proof before final publication.

Research Article: Full papers are complete reports of original research of high scientific quality that have not previously been published. Full paper contains all experimental details. New, significant, innovative and original findings are suitable as Research papers.
Communications: Short Communications are short reports of preliminary research findings and findings must be of great significance and urgency, and must contribute to the development or further development of an important area of research. A short Experimental section may be included. It includes preliminary data or studies that did not provide enough information for a Research paper.
Reviews: Reviews are summaries of significant recent research work and new developments from the research group of the principal author. The main part of the review should be a comprehensive but critical analysis of recent (last three to five years) developments, current problems, and future directions.

Plagiarism is a serious issue around the world in the arena of manuscript writing. Plagiarism means “the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language andthoughts of another author and the representation of the one's own original work”. This is generally noticed that, authors are simply copying scientific data and information from the other published papers, which is an awful practice in academic fraternity. Therefore I request to the all our author(s) please adopt the holistic & pragmatic approach to design the manuscript of interest. Hence IJRPS will not be responsible for further action on Plagiarism issue. The author will be solely responsible for plagiarism issue.

The manuscript must be submitted with a statement, signed by all the authors, regarding the originality, authorship and transfer of copyright as per the format given. The International Journal of Research in Pharmacy and Science requires the all authors to sign a copyright transfer agreement. This agreement can be downloaded from website and must be sent to IJRPS when the manuscript is accepted and scheduled for publication. All authors must read and agree to the conditions of copyright form and return the signed Copyright Transfer Agreement within 10 days. Unless this agreement is received, the journal will not publish the manuscript.

All manuscript should contain the covering letter. Format can be found on website.

To facilitate speedy and cost-effective submission of full manuscript, an online submission via internet is being offered. For online submission, please provide your complete manuscript in the form of single file containing all the material. Please place table and figures at appropriate places in the text. Authors are required to proof read the word file of their manuscript before submission.
Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their manuscripts electronically by online manuscript submission system of IJRPS. If the manuscript can't be submitted online, the SOFT COPY IN MS WORD FORMAT of original manuscript can be sent by e-mail to the articleijrps@gmail.com.
