Coverage includes: • Novel therapeutic strategies • High-throughput screening • Therapeutic targets • Combinatorial chemistry, parallel synthesis and library design • Drug delivery • ADME/Tox • Advances in key compound classes and therapeutic areas • Genomics and proteomics • Automation and technology • Virtual chemistry • Informatics • Business strategy • Clinical trials and other aspects of drug discovery. Ethics in Publishing: General Statement The Editor(s) and Publisher of this Journal believe that there are fundamental principles underlying scholarly or professional publishing. While this may not amount to a formal 'code of conduct', these fundamental principles with respect to the authors' paper are that the paper should: i) be the authors' own original work, which has not been previously published elsewhere, ii) reflect the authors' own research and analysis and do so in a truthful and complete manner, iii) properly credit the meaningful contributions of co-authors and co-researchers, iv) not be submitted to more than one journal for consideration, and v) be appropriately placed in the context of prior and existing research. Of equal importance are ethical guidelines dealing with research methods and research funding, including issues dealing with informed consent, research subject privacy rights, conflicts of interest, and sources of funding. While it may not be possible to draft a 'code' that applies adequately to all instances and circumstances, we believe it useful to outline our expectations of authors and procedures that the Journal will employ in the event of questions concerning author conduct. With respect to conflicts of interest, the Publisher now requires authors to declare any conflicts of interest that relate to papers accepted for publication in this Journal. A conflict of interest may exist when an author or the author's institution has a financial or other relationship with other people or organizations that may inappropriately influence the author's work. A conflict can be actual or potential and full disclosure to the Journal is the safest course. All submissions to the Journal must include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest. The Journal may use such information as a basis for editorial decisions and may publish such disclosures if they are believed to be important to readers in judging the manuscript. A decision may be made by the Journal not to publish on the basis of the declared conflict. For more information, please refer to: Submission to Drug Discovery Today is by invitation only. If you are interested in submitting an article please first send us a proposal with a brief description of the main theme of the article (approx. 100 - 200 words), listing the article type and if possible some key references. Information on how to submit a proposal can be found at:

Phytomedicine is primarily a therapy-oriented Journal. Phytomedicine publishes innovative studies on efficacy, safety, quality and mechanisms of action of specified plant extracts, phytopharmaceuticals and their isolated constituents. This includes clinical, pharmacological, pharmacokinetic, and toxicological studies of specified herbal medicinal products, herbal preparations and purified compounds which have a defined and consistent quality assuring reproducible pharmacological activity. Phytomedicine was founded in 1994 to focus and stimulate research in this particular field and to set internationally accepted scientific standards for pharmacological studies, proof of clinical efficacy and safety of phytomedicines. The main aims of Phytomedicine are associated with the integration of phytopreparations into conventional/official medicine. The journal covers the following sections: Clinical pharmacology and toxicology (randomized, placebo controlled, double blind, and observational open label studies) Behavioural, mental, affective, and stress-associated disorders Age-associated disorders Neuropharmacology Endocrine pharmacology Metabolic syndrome and obesity Cancer Immunopharmacology, inflammation Infectious diseases Pulmonary, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and urogenital diseases Systems biology Safety assessment, pre-clinical toxicology, interaction with drugs and adverse events of herbal preparations Pharmacokinetic of natural compounds Standardization of herbal preparations Legislation of botanicals Invited reviews The directions of Phytomedicine are known to provide profound scientific background in Herbal Medicinal Products, their reproducible Quality and evidence based therapeutic efficacy. Since then quality criteria and standardization methods were defined and the European Medical Agency has elaborated numerous guidelines for the conduction of clinical studies and preparation of Herbal Medicinal Products. In total 107 ESCOP monographs have been produced and submitted to EMA. Many new analytical methods and instruments were implemented both for analysis and standardization of herbal Substances, herbal preparations and their bioassays and tremendous work has been carried out to remain aligned with these intentions during the last 18 years. Nowadays important topics remain to be approached, such as harmonization of the regulatory frameworks in Europe, America, Asia and Australia or the legislation of various "botanicals", where strict differentiation of requirements for health claims of herbal medicinal product, dietary supplements and nutraceuticals are required. Phytomedicine is the companion title to the open access journal Phytomedicine Plus.
