Indian Journal of Research in Pharmacy and Biotechnology (IJRPB) is a peer review journal available in online and in printed formats. IJRPB is one of the leading journals in Pharmacy and Biotechnology with a strong interdisciplinary focus and biomedical and health application emphasis. IJRPB is a progressive, and comprehensive Pharmacy, Biotechnology, medical and healthcare science publisher that aim to provide free and easy access to scientific information to all as the scientifically tried and tested knowledge alone can lead to advancement of the societies and communities.
As the information and knowledge empowers communities from taking the right decision and save the communities from the dreaded diseases, we aim to bring the latest from the Pharmacy, Biotechnology, medical and healthcare advancements to the society. We are equally keen in encouraging the scientists working relentlessly in these fields to share their knowledge and research outcome with the society. We believe in the crowdsourcing movement and consider ourselves as a collaborative publisher. With a view to remain accessible to all, we have set the most affordable article processing charges.
IJRPB aims to uphold the rights of authors, address their needs, and foster a rapid, convenient, unbiased, and comprehensive publishing environment, which not only guarantees the highest quality constructive peer-review process, but also provides an evaluation system that involves the entire research community. To fulfil this mission, IJRPB applies the most advanced Internet technologies to bring scholarly publishing into a new generation.
SCOPE OF IJRPB
Indian Journal of Research in Pharmacy and Biotechnology (IJRPB) publishes original research papers, critical reviews, Case Reports and rapid communications on the latest developments in the fields of Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, biomedical, Imaging Informatics, Sensor Informatics, health informatics, Medical Informatics, and Public Health Informatics. where information and communication technologies intersect with Pharmacy, Biotechnology, health, healthcare, life sciences and biomedicine.
