Antiviral Research

  • ISSN: 0166-3542
  • 5 Year impact factor: 5
  • Impact factor: 4.5
A journal for research on the prevention and treatment of viral diseases An Official Publication of the International Society for Antiviral ResearchAntiviral Research publishes research reports, short communications, review articles and commentaries on the control of viral infections in humans and animals. Its scope encompasses:antiviral drugs, antibodies and host-response modifiers, including their synthesis, in vitro and in vivo testing and mechanisms of action.new or improved vaccines against viral infections of humans;assessments of drug and vaccine safety;evolution of drug- or vaccine-resistant viruses and the development of effective countermeasures;identification and validation of new drug targets;laboratory animal models of viral diseases;pathogenesis of viral diseases and mechanisms of viral evasion of host immune responses.We encourage the submission of manuscripts describing the activity of well-defined chemical compounds for the treatment of viral diseases of humans and vertebrate animals. We also publish manuscripts on the protective activity of vaccines for humans, and we will consider reports of the testing of veterinary vaccines in the target animal species. All papers must include a sufficiently detailed description of methods to permit other investigators to replicate the experiments. Authors reporting the antiviral effect of a novel small-molecule drug must reveal its chemical structure. Claims of in vitro or in vivo efficacy of a drug or vaccine must be supported by appropriate statistical analysis.Note: Antiviral Research may choose not to publish certain COVID-19 papers. The COVID-19 pandemic has focused attention on the possibility that patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 might benefit from treatment with certain licensed drugs approved for conditions other than viral infection. Reports that various medications inhibit the replication of the virus in vitro have been widely publicized in news articles and on medical websites, giving the impression that compounds still in the earliest stage of evaluation may be used to prevent or treat COVID-19. Such misunderstanding may result in the inappropriate use of a drug by physicians and to self-treatment by people who obtain it from other sources, with a risk of toxicity. This may be a particular problem when a medication is available without prescription as a veterinary product. Hoarding or inappropriate use of a drug intended to treat another disease may also make it unavailable to patients with that disease. The editors of Antiviral Research may therefore choose not to publish certain COVID-19 manuscripts, when in our judgment publication is likely to result in harm, without clear evidence of benefit.The scope of AVR also includes the prevention and treatment of viral diseases of vertebrate animals. We do not publish reports on viral diseases of plants or of insects, crustaceans or other invertebrates. Studies of viral diseases of livestock and companion animals must be clearly related to the development of realistic therapies. Papers on veterinary vaccines should report findings in the target animal species.We discourage the submission of manuscripts reporting the antiviral activity of unpurified natural products, or of partially purified substances of natural origin for which a mechanism of action has not been determined. Manuscripts claiming an antiviral effect of homeopathic products or other highly diluted preparations, or which fail to clearly identify the biological ingredient or molecule responsible for the antiviral activity of an experimental therapy, will not be considered for publication. Articles describing antiseptics with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity will not be accepted. We also discourage submission of in silico docking studies or other computer-based predictions of antiviral activity that are not supported by data from biological assays. Citations of reports that have not undergone peer review must include the note "[not peer-reviewed]."Antiviral Research is an official publication of the International Society for Antiviral Research (http://www.isar-icar.com).Benefits to authors We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more.

Biochemical Pharmacology

  • ISSN: 0006-2952
  • 5 Year impact factor: 5.2
  • Impact factor: 5.3
Biochemical Pharmacology publishes original research findings and review articles related to the elucidation of cellular and tissue function(s) at the biochemical and molecular levels, the modification of cellular phenotype(s) by genetic, transcriptional/translational or drug/compound-induced modifications, as well as the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of xenobiotics and drugs, the latter including both small molecules and biologics.The journal's target audience includes scientists engaged in the identification and study of the mechanisms of action of xenobiotics, biologics and drugs and in the drug discovery and development process.All areas of cellular biology and cellular, tissue/organ and whole animal pharmacology fall within the scope of the journal. Drug classes covered include anti-infectives, anti-inflammatory agents, chemotherapeutics, cardiovascular, endocrinological, immunological, metabolic, neurological and psychiatric drugs, as well as research on drug metabolism and kinetics. While medicinal chemistry is a topic of complementary interest, manuscripts in this area must contain sufficient biological data to characterize pharmacologically the compounds reported. Submissions describing work focused predominately on chemical synthesis and molecular modeling will not be considered for review.While particular emphasis is placed on reporting the results of molecular and biochemical studies, research involving the use of tissue and animal models of human pathophysiology and toxicology is of interest to the extent that it helps define drug mechanisms of action, safety and efficacy.Reports describing experiments conducted with natural product mixtures, plant or animal extracts will not be considered for publication unless the structures and concentrations of all component substances are known, and the agents can be easily obtained by others wishing to replicate the study.The chemical structure of all novel compounds tested must be included in the submitted manuscript or be readily accessible in the published literature. References to structures in the patent literature must unambiguously identify a single molecular structure. All compounds, reagents, instrumentation and equipment employed in a study must be available from identified commercial suppliers, bio/pharmaceutical companies or from individuals holding legal rights to their use. Submissions will not be considered for publication if the chemical structures of tested compounds are not revealed, generally known, or accessible in the literature.Original research submissions must contain:A rationale for the selection of the compound/drug for study as well as for the concentrations/doses employed. Quantities used for concentration- and dose-response experiments should vary logarithmically, e.g., 1, 3, 10, 30 mg/kg, 0.1, 1.0, 10, 100 nanomolar, etc. Justification must be provided for studying only a single concentration or dose of a compound, especially as it relates to reference standards and antagonists/modulators of receptors, enzymes and signaling pathways.Justification must also be provided for the selection of the statistical tests employed as they relate to the experimental design.It is expected that all findings have been subjected to rigorous quantitative analyses, with the calculation and reporting of IC50, Ki, EC50, etc., values. These must be derived from a minimum of three (3) separate and distinct experiments, with the replicates within any single experiment being averaged to obtain a single value for that experimental series.Manuscripts that fail to meet these criteria will be subject to rejection without peer-review.US National Institutes of Health (NIH) voluntary posting ("Public Access") policy:Biochemical Pharmacology and Elsevier facilitate the author's response to the NIH Public Access Policy.
