About the Journal

Dear Contributors,

The Pharmacy Education journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal.  The journal does not have article publication charges (APC) or subscription fees. It is published by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) and is aligned with a global mission of advancing education, practice, and science. The journal adheres to the principles of clinical and social pharmacy practice research as described in the Granada Statements.

Pharmacy Education covers all aspects of pharmacy and pharmaceutical-related education, training, and workforce development. The journal's scope includes educational matters related to professional practice and pharmaceutical science.

Editors, Associate Editors, Reviewers, and office staff are all volunteers, which ensures that there are no article publication charges/fees and that accepted manuscripts are open access immediately on publication.

We acknowledge and express our appreciation to all of our volunteers for their dedicated work in maintaining the high standards of our international research journal.
