How to publish in this journal

Scope

Medicinal chemistry has evolved rapidly into a highly interdisciplinary field, enriched by the collaborative efforts of experts from a wide spectrum of specialist areas, from chemoinformaticians and physical chemists to molecular biologists and pharmacologists. Future Medicinal Chemistry provides a regular point of access to commentary and debate for this ever-expanding and diversifying community. The journal showcases milestones in pharmaceutical R&D and features expert analysis of emerging research-from the identification of targets, through to the discovery, design, synthesis and evaluation of bioactive agents. There has never been more pressure to produce potent and safe compounds faster and more efficiently. Future Medicinal Chemistry offers a forum for the rapid publication of original research and critical reviews of the latest milestones in the field. Strong emphasis is placed on ensuring that the journal stimulates awareness of issues that are anticipated to play an increasingly central role in influencing the future direction of pharmaceutical chemistry. Where relevant, contributions are also actively encouraged on areas as diverse as biotechnology, enzymology, green chemistry, genomics, immunology, materials science, neglected diseases and orphan drugs, pharmacogenomics, proteomics and toxicology. Principal themes include: Drug discovery technologies, Design and synthesis of novel lead compounds, Computational approaches to synthesis and modeling, Biophysical techniques for structural characterization, Overviews of novel therapeutic strategies and emerging targets, Drug targeting and delivery, ADME/Tox investigations, Commentary on science policy, economic and IP issues Join the conversation about this journal
Quartiles

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

SJR

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
