Dear Contributors.

The Pharmacy Education journal, published by FIP, remains an open access, free to publish, peer reviewed journal. We welcome your submissions on all aspects of pharmacy and pharmaceutical related education, training and workforce development.

During the pandemic year of 2020, and continuing into 2021, we have received unprecedented levels of manuscript submissions. We thank you for these.  We have, in response, upgraded our publication platform.

We would like to iterate that all of our Editors, Associate Editors, Reviewers and office staff work as expert volunteers for the Journal, and this ensures there are no publication charges or subscription fees for your accepted manuscripts – all of which are immediate open access.

Due to continued high demand, we are undergoing a re-structuring of our editorial office and personnel. Please be patient if there are some delays in your manuscript processing times.

We thank all of our Editors, Associate Editors and Peer Reviewers for their continued work and dedication to this highly regarded international research journal.

Dr Marwan El Akel, Editor.

Professor Ian Bates, Editor-in-Chief.
