Special articles

PR&P also invites submission of several special article types:

  1. Target validation – publication of negative findings including preclinical papers that show a hypothesis is incorrect or papers on drugs that have failed in early clinical development

  2. Drug discovery reviews – strategy, hypotheses and data resulting in a successful therapeutic drug

  3. Frontiers in translational medicine – drug and target validation for an unmet therapeutic need

  4. Pharmacological hypotheses – reviews that are oriented to inform a novel hypothesis

  5. Replication studies - work that refutes key findings (failed replication), and work that validates key findings
