Guide for Authors

Only manuscripts that describe original work not previously published (except as a brief abstract in the proceedings of a scientific meeting or symposium) will be considered for publication in the Bulletin. 

Types of Manuscripts:

A‑ Articles or full papers, which give a concise account of the author(s) work in one of the fields of pharmacy. They should be addressed to specialists with the intention of increasing their knowledge in the field of research under consideration.

B‑ Notes, which are short articles, presenting concise but complete description of a small rounded‑off investigation or of a side part from the main line of investigation, which will not be included in a later paper.

C‑ Short communication, which presents work shorter than full papers with the intention of prompt publication on account of the scientific significance of the contents.

D- Review articles.
