International Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry

About IJPP

International Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry ISSN 9310-3182 is a worldwide peer-reviewed, open access medical journal that publishes significant research findings in the field of pharmacognosy and phytochemistry. The journal is a veritable platform for disseminating the results of research projects developed by scientists in these subject areas, thus giving visibility to scientific contributions in the field of pharmacognosy and phytochemistry (essentially works that deal with the botanical characterization of medicinal plant species, research and studies of active substances, biological activity of extracts and isolated compounds from plant species).  The prime focus of the journal is to publish articles related to the current trends of research in pharmacognosy and phytochemistry.

Aims and Scope

  • To publish articles dealing with all aspects of natural product (typically secondary metabolites) that are useful for their medicinal, ecological, gustatory, or other functional properties.
  • To publish papers drawing on a broad spectrum of biological subjects, including botany, ethnobotany, marine biology, microbiology, herbal medicine, chemistry, biotechnology, phytochemistry, pharmacology, pharmaceutics, clinical pharmacy and pharmacy practice.
  • To publish papers that aim to document, describe and explain complex relationships between cultures and (uses of) plants, focusing primarily on how plants are used, managed and perceived across human societies. This includes use for food, clothing, currency, ritual, medicine, dye, construction, cosmetics and a lot more.
  • The plant kingdom still holds many species of plants containing substances of medicinal value which have yet to be discovered. Large numbers of plants are constantly being screened for their possible pharmacological value. IJPP aims to publish papers dealing with the applications of pharmacognosy and phytochemistry, or the discovery of new drugs, or as an aid for plant physiology studies.
